Cool, thanks! This one really does a lot of compiler checks and mine is
gcc-specific. I came up with a much better variation (below). As far
as the standards, I think an empty pre-processor parameter is only
well-formed in C++03 or 11 and in C99 and later.

#define __JUNK junk,
#define _iff_empty(arg1_or_junk, t, f) __iff_empty(arg1_or_junk, f, t)
#define __iff_empty(__ignored1, __ignored2, result, ...) result
#define IFF_EMPTY(test, t, f) _iff_empty(__JUNK##test, t, f)

#define IS_EMPTY(test) IFF_EMPTY(test, 1, 0)

While this works in gcc, it doesn't deal with any compiler quirks &
differences, sorry.
