Comment on

( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Also out of curiosity, do monks really prefer having the and at the begining of the line?

Most definitely. It's easier to comment out a conditional to flip it off for debugging purposes, or if you just decide you don't want it any more. One comment at the start of the line and I'm finished.

The only remotely tricky thing that pops up is for the last conditional in a block, because that one'll have the semicolon at the end. Solution in that case? ;#. Not quite as clear for the poor sap who maintains it after it's commented that way, but still easy to type.
