I know I use IB instead of FB, so maybe my comment is out of place here.
But, why on earth would a statement that is commented out be looked at by
the parser at all? It doesn't seem very useful to me to have a beginning
comment designation that you still need to remove the ending terminator
character from the line. Is there a particular reason this was done or is it
an oversight that will be corrected in the next release?
