It's not clear to me whether or not the token should be consumed. The previous assertion leads me to think no, and in that case, I think this should be

if (Line.startsWith(tok::hash))
    return false;

A comment on this would also be helpful.

MyDeveloperDay marked an inline comment as done.

I'm not even sure if the assertion is valid?

To me, whether or not the assertion was valid is irrelevant. That assertion was intentionally added, and its replacement with an if() statement materially changes the inputs and outputs of the function. I'm questioning whether the input of a "while" token within a preprocessor statement should output true or false. (Before, it didn't output anything; it errored.) Does this make sense? I'm just asking for clarification on this change.

to be honest I'm not sure what the assertion is trying to actually assert (I'm not a massive fan of assertions especially like this), just because I see while am I not expecting to see a # at the beginning of the line?

I've tried both yours, mine and removing it completely and none of the test fail, so I feel like imposing the "Beyonce rule!!" and getting rid of it.
