A truly awful way of managing your problem might be to create a 
number of identical macros, each with a different numeric suffix 
(macro-foo-1, macro-foo-2, macro-foo-3, etc.) and then use the group 
counter to keep track of what is the highest macro being used, and 
then run MacroExclusive to jump and lock whatever the "free" macro 

Feel free to grind sand in your eyes and claim ignorance of this 
particularly ugly method if you don't want to defile your dialplan in 
this way.  I know I wouldn't want to.
