I once saw a patch for GNU M4 macro processor that made it possible to
have multiple definitions of the same macro. Substitutions were
made either by picking random definition or by specifying which one
should be taken. All in all it made M4 applicable to the task of
genrating endless stream of syntactically correct input for
lexers/parsers. Not a big deal, but quite useful at times, especially
with the rest of M4 functionality being there for you.
I guess you can still find it via google or by asking on M4 mailing list.
