First of all, PIs basically [expletive deleted]. Having said that, if you >gotta use them, this is the kind of thing to use them for. If PIs [expletive deleted], then perhaps they [expletive deleted] in the same way that using #defines in C++ does or the SQLJ preprocessor does: it can be a sign of insufficient analysis in the whole system (perhaps for legitimate reasons: the need may have emerged over time) or because of habit or to clearly demarcate different processing inputs to simplify subsequent phases or because of a deficiency in the underlying language. But this is not to allow that PIs [expletive deleted] in the first place. Actually, to use the C++, I think PIs correspond to pragmas more than anything.
