This doesn't help in any way, when it comes to updates of such code :-(
Eventual error messages refer to the preprocessed code, but corrections
should be applied to the unprocessed file - where? And what about
modifications to the preprocessed file - these are lost after the next
preprocessor run.

Okay, one can take that as an argument against *any* preprocessing, but
this doesn't help anybody who has a valid reason for using an
preprocessor. Look at the many includes in the cpu declarations, created
by external tools...
