I don't think anyone want to remove cpp anyhow in a near term.
I think this exercise is about offering another preprocessor that would 
be more suited to preprocess haskell (HPP).

Once ghc (or some standard) add this {-# LANGUAGE HPP #-} feature, 
projects can start migrating to the saner solution in their own time.
