My memory is not as capable as Ville's, so I'm certainly also at the
risk of rehashing things. But I remember the following discussion
elements. In the discussion that I attended the result was, "oh well,
could be done". That might not be the authoritative conclusion that
Ville witnessed.

CMake wants to do fancy things with $ in code. But the committee's CMake
friends stated that this should not matter to the committee.

Tooling not based on proper C++ parsing was already majorly broken by
digit separators.

These smart arguments are not mine, I am merely quoting smart people.

Cheers, Axel.
