Not the place for this discussion ( and I am quite happy
that Jason allows me to put // comments in - I use it for
part of my documenting routine! ) but is that natural
instinct of standards developers to say "That is being used
so we'll use something else"? Since '//' was a comment
standard why add '--' instead.

On a serious note, would // be that difficult to add? All my
C++ code commenting is based on it <g> and I strip those
lines to build documents.

Until this string poped up I did not even know there was a
problem - IBO does provide a good security blanket!

No doubt Microsoft will add a few more with their latest
hijak attempts (C#)
