I think you misunderstand the scope of PCH. PCH does a lot more
than preprocessing; it tends to combine all of preprocessing,
parsing, decl creation, type layout, semantic checks and possibly
even more into one. Ideally it would represent all compiler state
up to the point where the main file's real code begins.
