| Hello, and sorry for the delay,

Hello Ralf, and better late than never ;)

| I'm punting.  The '#define header templates' test already requires that
|   #undef macro additional-stuff
| removes "additional-stuff" from the input.  It may be possible to
| distinguish between '/* comments */', '// C++ comments', and other
| junk, but I don't think it's worth the effort, nor worth slowing
| everyone else down.

Fair enough.

| I vote for keeping the current behavior.  Changing it introduces an
| arbitrary backwards incompatibility; yet there hasn't even been a bug
| report which would benefit by this.  (OTOH, there have been real,
| actual, problematic bug reports which have so far generated much fewer
| traffic...)
| OK to commit this conservative fix?

Yes; please go ahead.
