Issue with Volt macros

I tring to use macros

{%- macro button(link,text) %}
<a href='{{link}}' class='btn btn-default'>{{text}}</a>
{%- endmacro %}
{{ button('link','te<b>st</b>') }}

It works perfect. But if I try to move forward and write

{%- macro button1(link,text) %}
<a href='{{link}}' class='btn btn-default'>{{text|e}}</a>
{%- endmacro %}
{{ button1('link','te<b>st</b>') }}

I have error. Because no $this is defined inside macros function. WTF

Volt generates following code

function vmacro_button1 ($__p) { /* check args */
  echo $this->escaper->escapeHtml($text); // $this is not defined here
// ...
echo vmacro_button1(array('link', 'te<b>st</b>'));

Possible construction to define $this in function could look like

global $g_vmacro_button1; $g_vmacro_button1=function($__p) { /* check args */
  echo $this->escaper->escapeHtml($text);
function vmacro_button1($__p) { global $g_vmacro_button1; $g_vmacro_button1($__p);  }
// ...
echo vmacro_button1(array('link', 'te<b>st</b>'));

The question is how to change the former macros into latter?


Sorry. I found an answer here My phalcon was 2.0.1
