Making a dialect can be worthwhile, if there is a real reason to.
(like a continue patch). But for such a petty detail like the format
of the comments its really just asking for troubles without getting
anything in return.
If you absoletly have to be unflexible, just run the source through
the c-preprocessor before executing. It will remove all // and /* */
