[texhax] tabbing in macros

OK, sorry, I didn't remember in time that Plain TeX has \outer makros
whose LaTeX versions are not \outer. Fortunately I found how to make
up for my error: \+ is the only tabbing macro that is \outer, and it has
the non-outer version \tabalign -- see TeXbook p. 354f. I.e., you can
use \tabalign for doing what \+ does within macros.
(You may prefer \let\+\tabalign, at least inside some group.)

One question arising is: do you want that some macro
a.) executes tabbing macros or that it b.) can take
tabbing macros in an argument?
Another question is: what is the problem with both?
Have you tried?
Or you might mean that you don't know how to define
TeX macros in general?
