Seriously? Nested comments are _awesome_. IMHO, if anything, the fact that
the language has /* */ and /** */ is what's terrible. It makes sense for
porting code, but in all respects, they are worse than /+ +/ and /++ +/. I
hate it when I'm working in languages other than D and am forced to use
/* */ and deal with the fact that they don't nest. It may be a small thing,
but the fact that D has nested comments is just one more thing on the list
of things that add up to make D a lot more pleasant to work with than other
languages.
