Well, personally I'm not a big fan of that kind of automatisms (I've
always got the feeling that it's only helping in supporting sloppy
programming -- why would you want to define something if you
eventually won't need it at all?), but I wouldn't mind adding it if
properly filed as a patch tracker.  Of course, without all the #undef
etc. but as a true patch that modifies avr/pgmspace.h.
