We've no objection to making changes to GHC to make it easy to use in
conjuction with cpphs (./configure --with-cpps or whatever), so
3rd-party packagers can provide GHC packages that use cpphs if they

However, we won't be adding cpphs to the GHC source tree, or requiring
it to be installed to build GHC, or shipping it in the standard
