Nit: Why do you leave off the accents? Comments are skipped in
their entirety (whatever the encoding). I have source code
with comments with all sorts of characters in them (most often
encoded in UTF-8), except something that terminates the comment
of course (linefeed or whatever). So far, none of the compilers
I regularly use in recent years has complained about that. String/
character literals and identifiers are unfortunately still another
