*** The new kmacro package provides a simpler user interface to
emacs' keyboard macro facilities.
Basically, it uses two function keys (default F7 and F8) like this:
F7 starts a macro, F8 ends the macro, and pressing F8 again executes
the last macro. While defining the macro, F7 inserts a counter value
which automatically increments every time the macro is executed.
M-F7 edits the last macro, C-F7 sets the counter, and S-F7 sets the
counter format. S-F8 executes the previous macro (actuall the head of
the keyboard macro ring), and C-F8 cycles through the keyboard macro
ring. C-u F8 swaps the last macro with the head of the macro ring.
