Ok. I'll not push it.

The problem is that there is no canonical replacement, as
the variety of macros is so large. I can certainly go
through all the macros and expand them manually, but this
from my point of view does not provide any additional
information beyond the "please don't use control-flow
changing macros".

Sorry for not being able to provide an appropriate wording.
Probably this is just too complex a topic to be put into
README.Coding, and we will have to live with people using
and people not using them.

With best regards,
