Not related to discussion, rather to "preprocessor", on my side I am
working with the database. And the database could practically include
certain Emacs Lisp expressions. Those could evolve from multiple
users. That is where preprocessor could be useful on my side as to
include such customized snippets or modified functions for each user
being different. That is currently handled on my side by using
`eval'. Other possible use for preprocessor is to dynamically include
some date, signature, link snippets in the script.
