Hi Alexey,

I have some comments on your patch:

1. The transform and replace methods really don't belong to "res-scanner". It
would be much more reasonable to add them to the regex module. As for
replace, I think it is possible to extend regex.replace to accept list, not
string as the first argument.
2. Why do you need to replace all double backslashes with signle ones? I'm
sure you have a reason, I'd just like it to be present as comment
3. The 'process' rule ends with:

scanner.propagate c-scanner : $(angle) $(quoted) : $(target) ;

Actually, I don't know much about RC files, so don't know if this correct: do
you really need c-scanner. I realize we can include header which can include
another header. I wonder if RC files can include other *RC* files?

Other than this issues, I think you patch can be comitted. Would you be
willing to send a corrected version?
