Currently you can create a plugin macro that requires zero arguments but there's two problems:

  1. You cannot set the minimum and maximum to zero (as opposed to zero or more).  If the max could be set to zero then the parsing code could be optimized to expect no argument.
  2. The syntax to call a zero-argument API macro is rather awkward:

$(my_macro )

# or:
$(call my_macro)
