Couldn't we use /* */ comments instead of every single line one by one?
When Jake and I were mass porting unit tests for 8099, I know I used idea's
shortcut (ctrl + /) to block comment out things that wouldn't compile while
porting over other tests; multi-line comments break from other multi-line
comments inside/between methods. Unfortunately attribution wasn't retained
on merges so we don't know whether to blame Sylvain, Jake, or myself on the
commented out tests that snuck through in the final patch. =/
Not necessarily a good reason, but at least it is *a* reason.
