Interestingly, I was talking to Allan about this yesterday.  I also 
often end up repeating a scratch macro lots of times in a row.  I asked 
if we could get some kind of "do scratch macro for each line in 
selection" action, and he said that it would be better to just have some 
sort of "repeat macro for selection" menu option that would perform a 
scratch macro repeatedly starting at the beginning of a selection and 
going through the end of it.  Apparently it would need to make sure that 
the macro always steps forward, but there may be some way to do that. 
So anyway, in response to your question, it's being thought about, and 
we'll hopefully see a solution sometime.
