Do you mean that the actual headers must be structured in such a way as to
only get included once? In other words, to have a inclusion tree that is
invariant? Or do you mean that the compiler should only process a file one
time by default? The first will end up causing more processing to be done
as more code than necessary gets included, and the second will break the
pp-lib altogether (it relies on multiple inclusion of the same file).
