I notice the second patch relies on being able to pass an empty (whitespace-only) second argument in order to generate "return;" in the macro, so putting parentheses there wouldn't work. Actually I didn't know it was possible to pass an empty (or, rather, whitespace-only) argument to a macro, but apparently it is. Is it standardized? If so, this seems fine to me, to use the argument without adding parentheses around it.
