A long while back Damian said I should follow up on the subject of
comments in qw// like constructs, and how useful they would be.

So im following up. Juerd said this is the right place.

If its not obvious why this would be nice: qw() is often used as a
list constructor for things like options or hash elements, and it
would be convenient to have a way to selectively comment out certain
elements. In perl 5 you have to C&P out the offending part and then
stick it in a comment later on. Or hand hack a custom qw//, which for
quick fixes, and stuff like that is a bit annoying.
