No other way?  You just need to think outside the box^w^wcpp.  How
about a pre-cpp filter that looks at the source code, finds the g_assert,
and does a little creative rewriting?

That would be a ten-line perl script.  Plus some Makefile magic to hook
it up.  There would be no extra run-time penalty and the compile-time
penalty would be near-zero.

Note, that the filter should preserve line numbers, i.e., never remove and
never insert newlines.  Otherwise error messages with line numbers would
drive you crazy.
