Did you see my emphatic "Yes!"?

I agree that this is usually the behavior one wants, which is why I
implemented it (years ago), and why I chose ignoring commented definitions
as the default behavior.

My point is that sometimes it can be useful to not ignore commented
definitions, and that users should be the ones to choose the behavior that
is most useful to them.  That's all.
