Hi Werner,

I'm not sure how useful the information was?  And how much it might
mislead if it's read instead of the sed.  :-)

BTW, doesn't still
have a `#' comment from before Brandon's change?  tmac/fixmacros.sed
also has one.

One can mark a set of sed lines to not execute, and this can be abused.

    /^# comment/{
        This is a comment for the sed script.\
        It isn't inserted anywhere.\
        But may slow down execution and I wouldn't recommend it.

(It seems one list adds [Groff] and the commit list adds [groff] and so
Mailman doesn't uniq them.)

Cheers, Ralph.
