I have modified my local version of Lua to support // comments in addition
to -- comments. It was a trivial change.
I did this because I and all my peeps are used to // comments from both C++
and our custom scripted event system.

That and # for comments are the two most annoying things about Lua
(historically I guess there wasn't the consensus about notation we have
today). They could both be introduced as alternatives quite happily
(though my preference would be to see the existing forms deprecated).
