I've recently seen it used in scwm, a fairly neat window manager (early
development stages, tho).


Now to another somewhat unrelated question:


What languages allow recursive comments ?
What languages enforce a "lexing" of the content of comments (so that an
end-comment inside a string inside a comment is ignored) ?
