- I believe to remember that the compiler complains about - inlining
  not possible with array of const.

- I do not see how it helps, to show that you can circumvent the use of
  macros in nearly all cases.

- The question is - in my mind - are there reasons a macro processor is
  the better and cleaner way to do it, in some contexts.

- Macro processing as concept is not useless if someone shows how it
  can be prevented in special cases.
