Apologies for butting in and I appreciate I don't have any ownership
over this codebase or right to suggest any changes, but this just
caught my eye before I could hit "delete".

My mantra tends to be "why, not what" for inline comments; in this
case you can get the same information from the next line of code as
you get from the comment.

Perhaps something like

/* it's clearly impossible to remove duplicates if there are fewer
than two GROUPBY columns */

might be more helpful?

(also sorry if I've misunderstood what it _actually_ does, I just made
an assumption based on reading this thread!)
