Where are we on this?  It seem odd that psql sends /* */ comments to the
server, but not "--" comments.  Should this be documented or changed?

I am confused why changing the behavior would affect the regression test
output as -- and /* */ comments already appear, and it was stated that
"--" comments are already not sent to the server.

Everyone agreed that suppressing \timing output for a PGRES_EMPTY_QUERY
return result was not a good idea.
