Subject:      macro- dataset naming

When I write a macro that will contain one or more datasteps (say, for intermediate calculations) I am never sure how to name them so they do not interfer with existing datasets. I feel like with larger macros, and increasing numbers of datasets, I am just asking for trouble. Is there a way to create datasets 'local' to the macro like can be done with macro variables? If not, I'd be interested what others do in this situation.
