(defmacro macro-do
  "Wrap a list of forms with an anonymous macro, which partitions the
forms into chunks of the right size for the macro's arglists. The
macro's body will be called once for every N items in the args
list, where N is the number of arguments the macro accepts. The
result of all expansions will be glued together in a (do ...) form.

Really, the macro is only called once, and is adjusted to expand
into a (do ...) form, but this is probably an implementation detail
that I'm not sure how a client could detect.

For example,
(macro-do [[f & args]]
`(def ~(symbol (str \"basic-\" f))
(partial ~f ~@args))
[f 'test] [y 1 2 3])
expands into (do
(def basic-f (partial f 'test))
(def basic-y (partial y 1 2 3)))"
