Yes of course.  I want ^;;; or ^# to act as whitespace in this case.

It is possible that those variables (which are in the Customization
section of the ediff manual) are insufficient to do what I want here.
It is possible that I need a new ediff-forward-word-function (which is
also in that section).

One issue is that I want only ^;;; or ^# to be treated as whitespace.
Not ;;; or # in the middle of text.

It is really simple.  I don't see why I should have to look at
highlighted spurious things when all I did was fill a paragraph.

No, because they are identical.  But if you had an unfilled paragraph
there instead of a single line, and ediffed the filled and unfilled
versions, you might understand.

What ediff hook works best here?
