Perhaps this is not the appropriate venue but the problem of multiline
comments occurs in all languages. At Geodesic system we have the following
convention for C++. All comments begin //, never /*, and comment extensions
x = y; // A comment on this
y = z; /// extends to the next line
z = w; // A new comment.
The problem is that pretty printers and browsers are also consumers of
comments so they must be machine readable to some extent.
We also have the convension that //- is a stripable comment. That is
tools may introduce //- comments into a program and the editor can
strip them all out.
