It is much simpler to read the source file through a file handle variable,
and to simply open a new one when encountering an '#include' file, stacking
the original file handle and returning to it when the lexer is finished with
the included source file.
This works well, requires very little memory for any reasonable depth of
inclusion compared to the overhead of instantiating an entirely new lexer
and parser, and conforms precisely to the semantics of '#include'.
