      Description

      GIven the following:

      #macro(test $a $b)
      #foreach($i in $a) $b #end
      #end
      #test( [1, 2, 3] "#if($i == 2) yes #else no #end")

      I would expect the output:

      no yes no

      Instead, I get

      no no no

      The Foreach directive explicitly sets $i in the localscope. This change was made for VELOCITY-285 . Before 285 Velocity correctly gave the results "no yes no" which is svn revision number 471881.
