All the cases I just mentioned have guardian ifdefs, though they're not #ifdef

There were one or two other examples I probably should have used instead of
#pragma, #sccs for example. I can see your point, of course, I'm just saying
preprocessors that don't discard unrecognized directives are needlessly
Not that it matters, of course. If #warning makes things break on a platform
someone cares about, then we can't use it. Life is hard.
