Things to note

As the linked mailing list post points out, the current Oz macro facility is not officially supported (for example, you can get to the macro docs via a direct link, but the main Oz documentation page doesn't have a link to the macro docs), and may eventually be broken.

The more interesting part, as far as I am concerned, is the the folks at UCL are apparently working on a new macro facility. Specifically they have a student who has a limited macro system up and running. No clear info on when it will ultimately be made available to the public though.
