But macros *need* to be so much more than simple key repetition !

Even a simple macro (find next occurrence of a string, delete the entire 
line it's on) has to do something "intelligent" if there is no next 
occurrence of the string, otherwise it will delete the wrong line.

And there is much more intelligence that can be put into editor macros ...
