Agreed. Not only does it seem that this one issue is now fixed, but the grammar
change mentioned earlier, which takes a brute-force approach to making comments
go away when adjacent to whitespace, is a good thing everywhere surely.

It seems that the fix has been done without causing damage to the strict
requirements of @charset, which is now appears to be parsed, as it needs to be,
very much as a special case, more like an atomic unit, an approach which will
make @charset safe from changes elsewhere in the grammar.
