Between the two, I'd say CPP is the much uglier beast. (I tend to use m4
actually when I must use a preprocessor in general, it meshes with haskell better
and is pretty ubiquitous). In any case, the simple solution of
not using CPP in the same file as string gaps works quite well. It has
never really been an issue before.
