I couldn't agree more! I much preferred the previous preprocessor  

This was necessary to integrate with VC++. If we weren't integrating  
clang to work with VC++, they wouldn't be necessary (we would simply  
use the GCC __attribute__ mechanism, as you suggest). Here's why they  
needed to be added...

We have some clients using clang to rewrite code on Windows (which  
includes preprocessing).

The previous implementation would remove these MS-specific keywords.

This implementation allows them to pass through (so VC++ can see them).
