How do you know what is the current directory and what is the original
file name?  Are you suggesting more than one string or something like
that?  *That* would be backward-incompatible, which is something I've
tried to avoid.

Because other parts of the compiler compare source filenames with
<built-in>, so those strings shouldn't be subject to translation.
Also, you wouldn't want them to be handled differently if you get a
file preprocessed with another language enabled, would you?

My stance is that preprocessed files are not user-readable content,
but rather another form of source code.
