Like Thomas, I think the existing #line is already a hack. The whole concept of
#line is not pretty. The fact that the # character used only in this one place
in the language is pretty hard to justify for such a tiny feature, IMHO. As far
as I can tell, any sequence of characters could be used for this purpose.

pragma(line) would be an even worse hack from the compiler-writers point of
view, since it's making two completely different things look the same, but is
it really important to the users to know have a strong visual clue of how this
feature is implemented?
