I'm not sure that's true. Have you actually tried?

FWIW, Samba3 is doing something similar for C++ reserved words:
(http://viewcvs.samba.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/branches/SAMBA_3_0_RELEASE/source/include/includes.h?rev=19018&view=markup)

- --- snip ---
/* only do the C++ reserved word check when we compile
   to include --with-developer since too many systems
   still have comflicts with their header files (e.g. IRIX 6.4) */

#if !defined(__cplusplus) && defined(DEVELOPER)
#define class #error DONT_USE_CPLUSPLUS_RESERVED_NAMES
#define private #error DONT_USE_CPLUSPLUS_RESERVED_NAMES
#define public #error DONT_USE_CPLUSPLUS_RESERVED_NAMES
