An excellent suggestion, with just one flaw (I think):
if I remember correctly, an ANSI compiler is entitled to choke on
because the text in the false branch still has to be legal C preprocessor
material, and the Standard doesn't guarantee that #UNRECOGNIZED is harmless.
(Someone please correct me if the Standard says differently.)
