Thanks! Such warnings should be property of particular macros. Sometimes ignoring of arguments may be handy. So no patch is required. The trick could be documented somewhere, but I am unsure concerning proper place. Actually, I do not think, fatal error is user-friendly behavior. I am not aware if export already have convenient facilities to report warnings. Currently I do not feel I am ready to implement such feature if it does not exist yet. However the point of that message was that extra commas may be made "transparent" for macros by introducing additional substitution, e.g. "$_" that expands into "rest" arguments. I consider "$@" or "$*" as worse variant since it rather mean "all arguments", so it is less flexible. For "eval" lisp macros, it is just replacing "_" by "$_" in argument list. Simple text macros require a bit more work but it is still comparable with documenting the feature. We need a decision if "rest arguments" feature should be introduced. Once added, it will be harder to discard it due to compatibility issues.
