IMHO it's not so much that it's considered THAT evil, it's just an
easy thing for reviewers to spot :-) C++-style comments aren't C89
(although they are C99), so plenty of oldish compilers would be well
within their rights to reject code that uses that style of
commenting. Since the rest of the code is consistent in not using
these comments, there's really no benefit to using them that I can
see.

doc/src/sgml/ref/psql-ref.sgml, circa line 705, obviously needs
updating. That's the only place I could see, although I didn't spend
much time looking.

No, it just reminded me about the patch. As for asking questions about
procedure, that's fine with me (more often than not it's I who's
asking :P)
