strict/lazy and macros

so.. in a lazy language, less macros are necessary because evaluation
order isn't much of an issue. in a strict language, the existance of
'if' and 'lambda' as a special form infects certain constructs (to
be special forms also)

now, where would a lazy language need macros? there is template
Haskell, so i guess there is some need for metaprogramming..
