...which makes "#.\s" good only for inserting whitespace where it
normally wouldn't belong.  On the one hand, there's something nice

instead of

OTOH, wasn't the whole point to get away from "long dot is a special

"delimited comment" concept, rather than being a "raw special case",
is more acceptable to my mind.
