I think it was macro concatenation to form enum names, like CASE(uint8_t)
which was supposed to create 

  case TYPE_uint8_t:

but the #define for uint8_t was not in scope in the enum declaration, so
we get TYPE_uint8_t defined, but use "case TYPE___uint8_t:", and there
was also some template class definition thing very similar. The 
tech-userland thread Brook pointed at shows another similar macro
concatenation example.
