Is a symbol prefix an acceptable solution? Like '?' for macros and '#'
for records. Now that we're talking unicode, there are plenty of
symbols to choose from, but of course it would be better to have one
that most people have on their keyboards :-)

'_' would be perfect, if it didn't have special meaning to the compiler...
