Ouch, quite impressive! Patch applied but some explanation would be
nice. :-)

If I understood correctly:

 - put label "a";

 - for each line starting with "#:", add them to the "pattern space";

 - remove each pattern "\n#:";

 - branch to label "a" if previous substitution is successful.

Am I correct?
