I do think it'd be useful.  I don't think 'inline' deserves inclusion
and just complicates it more than necessary (my 2c at least).  I'd just
do them all as 'headline' and wrap at 80 chars.

I will point out that this use of COMMENT is novel though, no?  Comments
are normally handled as "COMMENT ON blah IS 'whatever';"  ALTER SYSTEM
is certainly special but I'm not sure I like the idea of having some
commands which support in-command COMMENT while others don't.
