[IronPython] Preprocessor directives in IronPython 2.0

The one form this is available is with the assert keyword.  Assert statements will be removed in optimized code so you don't have the if debug check.  But they won't let you have the else branch.

Nope.  Why do you think you want them?  Or rather, what's wrong with this:

debug = False

def Main():
    if debug:
        print 'DEBUG is set'
        print 'DEBUG is not set'

In C# we can code for conditional compilation such as:
public static void Main()
Console.WriteLine("DEBUG is defined");
Console.WriteLine("DEBUG is not defined");

Is it possible to do the same in IronPython? Does it support preprocessor directives?
