Hmm.  There could be a better solution.  Since no released version of
cpphs has yet had the behaviour of stripping C eol // comments, (only
the darcs version) there is still time to change the meaning of the
flags.  In particular, we could swap --strip back to mean what it used
to mean (the current --strip-c89 behaviour), and find a new name for the
eol-stripping flag.
