Yes, I'm still here and still waiting for an answer to my last mail about 
bringing Mika to the incubator ...

For JavaME I think it's the only way we'd be able to maintain a single source 
tree. We need to be able to "#ifdef out" references to classes we don't have, 
methods we don't implement, etc..

That much being said, I don't have a recommendation for a tool to use. Java 
syntax is sufficiently C-like that cpp is probably do-able, but we'd probably 
stumble over a whole series of gotcha's, and cpp isn't exactly [deity]'s gift 
to preprocessing anyway. Maybe one of the aspect-oriented tools (with which I 
am not at all familiar) could be a better bet?
