If you did, you can liberate yourself from the arcane syntax of the C 
preprocessor and simply invent your own syntax that, hopefully, fits 
better into the general syntax of .prm files :-)

Feel free to discuss what syntax you want before implementing it.

(You get extra bonus points if you were to implement this directly in 
the ParameterHandler class, rather than as a *pre*processor. But that 
might require more work than you're willing to do and I understand that.)
