That's a good idea, but it doesn't work well in some cases. At least
I don't see a way to make it work in a situation I encounter often
while debugging my renderer. I use $if, $end to comment out sections
of large data arrays (vertex and polygon lists to be precise) to try
to locate regions of the data were a problem is occuring. For that
purpose "comment = [[...]]" doesn't work because (I believe) there's
no valid syntax that allows it to be put it in the middle of table
constructor consisting of a list of objects. So unless there's
another trick I'm missing I still think a block comment delimiter
would be helpful. That is in the absence of $if, $end of course.
