Correct - The problem crops up because expressions still got to be valid.
I resolve the problem, I use double quotes, so that elisp would consider
the comment lines as common strings.  Is there a way to construct a macro
or function to disregard the requirement for valid expressions, because
one can write whatever one wants in comments.
