Dear Philip, Neal and Uwe, thanks a lot!

The doubling of the hashes was easy to understand. I also did a quick reading
about "\csname" in the web and in principle understood how to use it. Later I
will try to use these techniques and see whether I succeed. In any case, now I
have a clear indication of what to study.

Uwe: I really wanted the argument of \macromaker to be used in the names of
its "submacros". The need for this was perhaps not clear from that
artificially built example, but I do want to use it in my real context.

Thanks again, --Pablo.
