You should read it as (Modular C++) preprocessor. C++ module files must
be 'preprocessed' such that they are converted to C++ header files and
C++ implementation files, which are fed to your compiler. Also, a
'module header' file is generated which can be used by other modules to
learn about the public contents of a module. It relates to boost.spirit
(not boost.wave) which is a parser framework, which will be used to
read the module files.
