Yeah.  Personally, I'd want to continue the rule against // comments just
as a matter of maintaining stylistic consistency.  Code that's got a
random mishmash of // and /* comments looks messy, if you ask me.

An alternative that would be worth considering is to adopt a uniform
rule of // for line-ending comments and /* for all other uses.  We'd
have to teach pgindent about that, and I dunno how hard that is.
