As for what should be done to bring back the lost functionality...  the
ANSI C folks have basically said "if you want a general-purpose macro
processor, use m4".  The programs that this "change" will break are
broken already, and should be fixed to do it right.

Great. Another tool that's nearly vital for writing C, but not available
on most (all) non-Unix systems. Anybody got pointers to a public domain
