I am not a camlp4-guru, but if I am not mistaken, such extensions should
be quite straightforward. If users have to preprocess their files anyway,
they are probably indifferent to whether their preprocessor is the
"plain vanilla" one or not.

Maybe Daniel could tell us how to implement this extension with least
effort?
