And some introduced, most likely. Just how much does your script know
about C syntax, macros, etc?

I concur with David Gould that this is a risky, expensive exercise
with very little potential gain.

If you were able to identify any spots with the sort of macro-induced
bug you illustrated, great! Fix 'em by hand. But I doubt that a
12000-line wholesale modification is worth the trouble. Heck, half
the code I've looked at in pgsql doesn't even conform to indentation/
tab-width conventions ... and *those* we have well-tested tools to fix.
