If done right, it ought to be simpler than target macros. If you look
at individual target macros in isolation, conversion from macro to
hook invariably makes the back-end interface simpler, just because it
forces you not to do the horrible define-here-redefine-there mess that
is the current state of a lot of the macros.
True for some, but not others. Yes, we have a lot of macros which are actually
functions, but we also have a lot of macros that are just a half dozen
tokens which would have to be converted into a function.
