Hi Robert O.

If I'm not mistaken, the #pragmadirective is used by the C/C++ preprocessor for providing additional information, beyond what the language itself can offer. I thought this was the main inspiration for #pragma(tic) shader composition. Anyway, based on feedback I'm now convinced that my proposition isn't that useful as I thought :)  and on that note, I rest my case.
