You could actually run Lua files through the C preprocessor for true
#define support.

It will probably mostly work but note that the C preprocessor does
not understand Lua comments or long strings and will perform macro
substitution on their contents. However, this may be a feature.

Also, cpp will probably choke on any Lua code that uses # in the first
column, but I guess this will be rare :-).

Unless one is really fond of Rici Lake's templating engine or its derivatives :-)
