There's no portable way to use C #define's to introduce new tokens into
a program, since macro replacement is defined in terms of token strings
in K&R [C RefMan 12.1].  This issue -- character string vs. token string
macros -- came up at the most recent C ANSI standards committee meeting,
and the token string viewpoint prevailed.
