I thought about starting a new section for reasons that are partly 
pedagogical: we want to break away with the Old Ways and start our Brave 
New World! ;-)

In addition, I suspect it would be confusing to have in the same section 
description of two essentially parallel, but subtly different (e.g., 
functions vs macros) systems.  It seemed to me that if we say clearly in 
each section/chapter what system it describes, the reader will be less 

However, if you feel we should document them all together, I won't 
object; the above are not strong feelings.
