There's actually quite a bit of hacking to make ghc properly support
decoupling the Haskell cpp and c compiler. Nothing has been merged in yet.
I've some (incomplete) patches with the help of a few other folks, and
Austin might be doing some exploratory also.
The engineering needed to support cpphs is also exactly what's needed to
make the Haskell cpp choice easy to change in the ghc settings files etc
