I see, this is really bad then...

Yes, I think it would be needed. But, it should be faster than
reprocess everything from the beginning if it spans to many options.

Why? If I could be able to keep the symbols consistent, like not
defining one that has already been used or something similar it
shouldnt have any problem.
I want to use wave to analyze the source, not to create a preprocessed output.
