We are not processing C++ like header chains here, so the relative speed
of either tool is of little relevance. But I wouldn't be too sure with
$ time m4 < web2 > /dev/null
0.06 real 0.05 user 0.01 sys
$ time cpp < web2 > /dev/null
0.34 real 0.24 user 0.10 sys
The primary reason for going with m4 is simply that m4 allows a number
of things to be done more sanely.
