Ah, I must have mixed it up when copying it out of the e-mail. It was
good to understand that macro nevertheless. I'll use the hygienic one
then or the one from Linus repository, because it does something, that I
thought would be very useful to have: A configurable place where to put
the value from the previous step of computation. In fact, I did not
understand at first what `<>` and `<...>` do, and thought maybe I could
try and write one which uses `_` to achieve this effect, but then I read
the examples in the follow-up e-mails and saw, that that macro already
does it. This is great!
