Nice! I ran the GHC parser tests using your preprocessor, and get 9 failures out of 27 in the should_compile class. Some of these are bogus (problems with the lexer you're using rather than the layout preprocessor). The should_fail class all failed, but that's because column numbers are different in the preprocessed result, so the error messages changed, I'll need to look at these individually.
I've attached a patch that corrects a couple of the failures in the should_compile class.
