A biggy that I had left out has just reoccurred to me. The very first reason for me to look at how unlitting and preprocessing is done in GHC was, because I was looking into what would be required for a refactoring engine (like haRe) to be based on the GHC API. Of course, at the moment, the API doesn't do anything with unlitting and preprocessing.
