It works with the example I sent earlier, but the problem still shows
up when passing quoted values to a macro interactively:  answering
'reply' to :write-first-param still prints reply' with no leading
quote.  I've discovered that this can be worked around somewhat by
using &query, so here's a macro that would print 'reply' as expected:

    store-procedure write-reply
        write-message &query 'String: '
