      Description

      Inspired by VELOCITY-583 (BlockMacro support) I implemented the same functionality in a slightly different way.

      The new syntax is:

      #@yourMacroName($arg1 $arg2) any valid velocity AST here #end

      so basically the syntax is exactly the same as for normal macros except you put that @ prefix to the macro name. That tells Velocity that there's a macro AST body that should be passed to the actual macro.

      And in the macro you can refer to the passed body 0-N times. Like:

      #macro(yourMacroName $foo $bar)
      $bodyContent
      #end
