I don't see any reason technically that it couldn't be done.  The parser
would need to be massaged somewhat.  I can't remember whether the
function that parses define/endef also creates the variable, or whether
it just returns a string containing the value and the caller creates the
variable; if the former it should be pretty simple.  If the latter a bit
less tidy.  Offhand I'd guess it's the latter.
