I toyed around with that kind of idea, but, having just done a lot of
partially-automated text processing on these files, I know just how hard
it is to get it right-- I wouldn't want to leave that to an automated
script. Also, I'm not a big fan of having to mangle the header files
before they're usable-- I'd rather be able to point my GCC include path
straight at my working copy.
