I pointed out that macros make source line numbers much less
useful, lamenting that Erlang has such things.

This is true, but it doesn't seriously interfere with the utility of line
numbers, especially for programmers who make little or no use of macros.
I just extracted all the non-white-space non-comment non-'end' lines from
the *.[ehy]rl files in an Erlang distribution, and found that
one line in 94 is a -define.
This is a *higher* proportion of -defines in Erlang/OTP than
I have #defines in my C code!
