Hi, Fabio!


Thank you for feedback

Make sense. Will fix in v2.

Sorry, I don't get it. I didn't touch these macros, it's part of diffstat.

Yep, this will be more cleaner, but I decided to receive some feedback
first about the idea. If this error handling is really necessary, I will
rework this approach :)
