I have changed __has_include__ to return true if a header exists but is 
unreadable.  Then I tried to see if an error would occur for a header of 
permission 000.
Just including it gives a permission error.  Putting it into an #if 
block does not.
ed@bad-horse:~/tr2$ ls -l hidden.h
---------- 1 ed ed 0 Sep 26 10:27 hidden.h
//  Try header that exists but we can't read.
#if __has_include("hidden.h")
#  warning "found hidden.h"
#  include "hidden.h" // No error!
#  error "hidden.h"

#if 1
#  include "hidden.h" // No error!

Is this a bug in cpp?

I'm going to submit new patches that answer all your questions.  As far 
as this one goes I do no worse than current behavior.
As for [[deprecated]] for C++11 I'll add another patch on top of the four.
