I'd suggest a different approach.  Just move ExtendedTokenMode up to  
PreprocessorLexer, and make SetCommentRetentionState a non-virtual  
method there.  That way the PP Can just unconditionally call the  
method, and everything is happy.  The tricky part is to write the  
doxygen comment for ExtendedTokenMode/SetCommentRetentionState to  
properly explain what they do on the generic PPLexer.

The benefit of doing this is that the conditionals disappear.
