We had a similar discussion already. This involves some kind of
re-evaluation of some of the input sequence after changing the internal
state of the preprocessor. Wave currently does not support this.

Wouldn't this involve making copies of the internal state essentially after
every token (or at least before every pp operation), just to ensure it can
be restarted at arbitrary points?

I'm sure its impossible to make sure not to run into inconsistencies when
trying to implement such a scheme (even putting aside the possible
performance implications of making state copies).
