(defn apply-template
"For use in macros. argv is an argument list, as in defn. expr is
a quoted expression using the symbols in argv. values is a sequence
of values to be used for the arguments.
apply-template will recursively replace argument symbols in expr
with their corresponding values, returning a modified expr.
Example: (apply-template '[x] '(+ x x) '[2])
;=> (+ 2 2)"

(defmacro do-template
"Repeatedly copies expr (in a do block) for each group of arguments
in values. values are automatically partitioned by the number of
arguments in argv, an argument vector as in defn.
Example: (macroexpand '(do-template [x y] (+ y x) 2 4 3 5))
;=> (do (+ 4 2) (+ 5 3))"
