Writing powerful syntax-rules macros is hard because they do not compose well: The arguments of a macro expansion are not expanded. This SRFI defines an easy to comprehend high-level system for writing powerful, composable (or eager) macros, two of whose defining features are that its macro arguments are (in general) eagerly expanded and that it can be portably implemented in any Scheme implementation conforming to the R7RS.
