The strategy here will be to get the text for the macro, replace every $foo in the body of the macro with a string of the same length, e.g., xfoo. Then re-parse it and format it and convert the xfoos back to $foos (obvs we need to check that there is no xfoo in the body before substituting).

We'll need to format the decl of the macro, and find the body, I suppose, using token trees.
