Well, there's always diff ...

In the name of all that's holy, that's _vile_. Actually, I suspect that
ATL may be OK (it does tend to be template based code, not relying on
pre-built code so much), but I think you're right about MFC.

What a horrible concept.

Still, given that all headers that rely on this behaviour should be
included before the undefining header, it looks doable.
