I've used embedded comments a number of times (especially in examples)
and found them to be incredibly useful.  I'd be sad to see them disappear.

I'd be fine with the ##(embedded comment solution) approach (doubling
the #'s), but it's much less visually appealing to me.  I think I'd 
prefer to see a doubling of the bracketing chars instead of doubling 
the #'s -- the # is visually a "heavy" glyph and I'd prefer 
something a bit lighter.
