Is there also a hook to decide if an #if #else expression should be
evaluated or left as it is?

Are you saying that we need to inline the headers or wave wont see the
macro definitions?
Would it be possible to split the parsing of includes from the inline

I expect that we do need the defined macros from included files if we
want everything correctly evaluated. But if it is to be readable no
headers should be expanded. We want the source files to look like hand
written code.
