I did think about it but 2 things restrained me to do so:
- Macros are actually checked by the compiler so if you mispell the macro you 
will have a warning at compile time, but if you mispell a string nobody will 
tell you.
- I already changed a lot of code so I didn't want to change this ;-)

If you want to remove them I won't really mind, as I didn't really know what 
to do about them myself.
