This is a nice feature, but it does not solve the problem of inner word
macro calls.

Is it possible to make the leading and trailing spacing around a macro
call being avoided?  Once the places where these spacings are applied
are identified in the code, we can discuss methods to suppress the

Philosophically, this would establish a complete equivalence of strings 
and macros, as was intended from the beginning.  So far, this 
equivalence is valid only for macros without an argument.
