Oops. This runs contrary to the idea that I should try to integrate the meta "processing code" with the compiler. While having a stand-alone preprocessor do all the meta things, it definitely is more work, since it would have to understand D. A lot of that could be skipped if I just tweaked the parser. I hope the separation is a C++ only issue?
