I am having trouble getting quoting to work
with groups. variables inside quoted groups just disappear,
contrary to what the manual says.
This makes it almost imossible to write useful macros.
Has anyone else come across this?
Am I mising something?
Also is latte still being actively maintained?
Or used??

As to the details of my problem, I get

$ latte-text   
\'{\add 3 4}
^D
3 4
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

while the manual gives the example

\'{\add 3 4}
  => {\add 3 4}

I am using latte-2.1 on
