> Charmonizer currently uses a Perl script 'METAQUOTE' to preprocess its '.charm' files
into '.c' files and '.harm' files into '.h' files.   This works, but requires a dependency
on Perl that seems inappropriate for a C language tool.
> The suggested alternatives were to use manual quoting or standard macros.  
> Manual quoting seemed error prone and cumbersome, so this patch proposes the using the
'stringify' (#expr) function within standard C preprocessor macros.
