i may certainly be missing something, as i only used cpp in haskell for
conditional compilation. having said that:
i'd like to have (instead of LANGUAGE CPP) the following extension.
LANGUAGE FilterWithExternalProgram my_cpp
that would make it possible to use a cpp implementation implemented
separately from ghc and would leave it to the ecosystem to implement
best practices (i.e. a haskell implementation of cpp or the proposed
i _guess_ that should also make it easier to use compile-to-haskell
programs like she. maybe a hypothetical template haskell alternative
might also work with it.
