Hey Vinay,

I get similar feelings towards this RFC as Lukasz and Radek do.

Was your intention to propose format of the comments? Or maybe force
people to comment more on the code? Or just pointing out that we could
use some subtest documentation?

You are not documenting subtests, you are documenting arbitrary
functions that may or may not be used as a subtest.

I cannot help but feel lost here.

Being explicit as of your intention and coming up with more abstract or
better examples would also help, as current ones are detracting from the
idea itself.

I do not get this RFC and it's purpose but I am looking forward to
seeing revised version that is clearer on your intentions and easier to
