I think it's good to do things like this as a preprocessor(when 
possible) initially.  It means ideas can be
tried out more easily and given a test run before attacking the compiler.

I guess it could be done in the compiler if someone made a plugin 
mechanism for fpc.
I ain't volunteering for _that_ job :-)
