I appreciate that, however, I'm not going to implement anything
without a specification that we would not be ashamed to submit for
standardization.  No more underspecified extensions.

It would probably be cleanest to teach the preprocessor about C++'s
namespace and using keywords.  The #pragma scheme would be a lot
easier to implement, though.  (Either way, I'm not the one to specify
it, I don't know enough C++.)
