Subject: Comments on P2178R1: Misc lexing and string handling improvements

Hi,

In preparation for tomorrow's SG16 meeting, I'd like to point out
that, historically, the lexing and preprocessing behavior of
C and C++ were intentionally aligned. In particular, a stand-alone
C preprocessor could be used to pre-process C++ as well
(with some mild alterations such as recognizing // comments).

Ideally, we should make sure that any changes in that
area are applied to C as well.

Jens
