I believe that the intended solution is to learn to use the high level macros, and not worry too much about the details.

That said, I fully agree that there are a lot of them to learn.

    Actually most(Almost all) don't have documentation regarding what they do. So inorder to figure out the logical equivalent of code, the sub macros have to be hand assembled into the main macro.

    Then that macro put back to the original calling scope of the program. To make complete sense of the scope, each and every macro needs to be assembled.

    That kind of puts the complexity out of bounds for human interpretation.
