For example to find out what exactly is bad about them - i.e.,
you develop something, you cannot save it, ok, lets comment out
the part I am not sure about and try again. Or work in progress
(hey, I've gotta sleep sometime) that you want to be stored in
the ZODB even though it's not finished. Astonishingly, some
really difficult 3am problems become surprisingly easy at 9am
after a few hour's sleep.

But still, the parser could read over all comments as long as the
<dtml-comment> tags are properly nested.
