// for comments

(the following is not a policy decision, yet)

I don't think we will be supporting any compilers so old as not support
slashslash comments.
OTOH, I think they are confusing, but that's a personal preference, due to
my visceral dislike of JavaScript.
My preference is we avoid adding more, and should add that to the style
Don't waste time fixing them.  But if anyone wants to do so anyway, sure,
go ahead.

OTOH, ??-style trigraphs are an abomination, and should never be used.

I solicit other opinions.
