Macro expansion is already recursive.

I think multiline macros are not needed, as they would be redundant with
Babel. Despite what is written (for now) in the documentation, macros
should be used for simple replacements, and Babel machinery for
everything else.

Though, you can have a macro expand to a one-line Babel call if you want
