the choice is yours.  thanks for posting the patch, anyway.
perhaps someone will get ideas from reading it and make
useful changes to asm-mode.el in the future.

some observations for the next patch, should you have a
change of heart:

 - the function asm-set-comment-char allows for very
   dynamic comment char.  i wonder how useful that would
   be in practice -- do assembler language files often
   contain different regions w/ varying comment chars?
   (i.e., can we get same results w/ asm-mode-hook?)

 - docstrings conventionally have the grammar style:
   "Return foo..." instead of "Returns foo...".  also,
   they should mention the function's arguments.

 - error messages conventionally begin w/ a capital

 - the need to refontify strikes me as unclean.
   perhaps this is related to the first point above.

see info nodes `(elisp) Tips' and `(elisp) Major Mode'
for more information.  if you have difficulty w/ that
documentation, please start another thread.

(i will bow out of this thread now.)
