I personally do not like the hassle that introducing preprocessing into
java brings up.
There is no standard regarding preprocessing in java (I saw ANT filters,
C preprocessor, AWK, SED, Bash eval expansion and even Perl Scripts.),
and the most annoying thing is that I know no IDE or syntax highlighting
java editor that is really preprocessor aware. Automatic bug checking
and such do not work, as well as the refactoring tools.

Oh, that's weird, as I remember several statements from strk that 7.2 is
the oldest supported version.
Maybe the documentation should be updated.

It was not meant as a joke at all, as I wrote under the premise that 7.2
is the oldest server version supported by PostGIS.
