I've always been in favor of requiring macro definitions to precede
their uses.  See "The tale of Professor Simpleton and Dr. Hardcase" at

But you, Wormtongue, you have done what you could for your true master.  Some
reward you have earned at least.  Yet Saruman is apt to overlook his bargains.
I should advise you to go quickly and remind him, lest he forget your faithful
service.  --Gandalf             John Cowan <cowan@x>
