Breaking the old pre-docs doesn't sound nice... How much would it break?
Just the use of defines? Would a syntax like:
[include <file_name> <scope>]
where <scope> defaults to 'local' not give enough flexibility to make
conditionals useful, without breaking old code? It might even be useful in
some normal-use cases (like conditionally including different macro
definition files).

I'm not sure if this would work well with quickbook; maybe that would mean
using something like 1) then?

Just a thought,
