You continue to not even answer this very fundamental question.

"#pragma once" doesn't seem to have a _single_ actual real advantage.

Everybody already does the optimization of not even opening - much
less reading and re-parsing - headers that have the traditional #ifdef

And even if you _don't_ do that optimization, the #ifdef guard
fundmentally semantically guarantyees the right behavior.

So the #ifdef guard is
 (a) standard
 (b) simple
 (c) reliable
 (d) traditional

and you have yet to explain a _single_ advantage of "#pragma once".

Why add this incredible churn that has no upside?

So no. We're not using #pragma once unless y9ou can come up with some
very strong argument for it

And no, having to come up with a name for the #ifdef guard is not a
strong argument. It's simply not that complicated.
