Could be neither or both.  The implementation of Scheme hygienic macros is
fairly complicated, and if you push the limits, things may break.

I think is a case where you have to dig into the Kawa implementation of
macros, and add the desired SRFI-147 functionality.  Having it be an add-on
will be fragile, at best, I suspect.
