Slightly OT, perhaps.  Reading the sources, I noticed a *lot* of things like

(defmacro defmacro


(defun eq (a b)
   (eq a b))

.  How exactly does that work?  It sort of boggles my mind, really.  Is there a general explanation on the web somewhere for this technique, or could someone explain how it works in Muerte?
