Technical or non-technical; it's at least pretty inconsistent: - it only times with the last comment. - it only times with the /**/ comment; to time your trailing -- comments you'll have to find another solution :) Obviously it's a minor thing, and I don't care if it does not get removed, but I don't think you can argue that it serves any useful purpose in the current state.
