Here is the final word from a Microsoft developer w.r.t. argument
prescan in MSVC.

Our preprocessor is ancient, some of the code is from 1977 or 1978.  I'm
pretty sure this bug has been around that long.

We don't directly expose our bug database for every bug, but customer
reported bugs can be tracked.  If you report this bug here:

you can track it yourself.  We definitely won't be fixing this bug in
Whidbey.  We would definitely like to fix it in a future release, but I
can't commit to what release that might be.

I use the term 'rescan'.
