that would allow both to happen.

whatever is easier! im happy to pay the price one time (at read time)  
to avoid it happening every time at eval time.  ottherwise ill get rid  
of some of my macros since they werent intended to be run each time  
the function runs (like my optkey arg parsing)  so for me id much  
rather pay the piper when the system boots rahter when people are  
calling things under processes!
