To whom it may concern:

I have been approached by mail that the set of PDF-related macros in 
cwebmac.tex (originating from cweb 3.61 as of fall 2000) produces problems 
with PDF bookmarks for sources and change files when "\let\maybe=\iffalse" is 
set, so that only "changed" sections are actually printed.

To analyze the problem, I have create a branch on Github that reproduces the 
relevant steps for closer inspection:

Although I had been involved with the pdftex part of cwebmac.tex, I am not in 
the position to work on this problem. However, I'd be glad to receive feedback 
on "issue 1": https://github.com/ascherer/cweb/issues/1

Cheers, Andreas
