At least on UNIX, there a preprocessor which would solve
this problems: cpp

But I don't know if there is something similar for windows.

I would like to see the "include" statement, but not as preporocessor.
Wanted to implemented it already, but didn't found the time to learn
enough java and understand the mkgmap code.

I use a script which uses some standard UNIX commands to workaround
the missing "include" statement.
