There's no need to be so disparaging.  comment-cache is NOT in any sense
a "quick fix".  It's precisely the opposite.  It's a rigorous rewrite of
back_comment which eliminates "quick fixes", for example
open-paren-in-column-0-is-defun-start.  I think you know this.

And given how long this problem's been around for, it's high time it was
finally fixed.  It's an embarrassment, and it causes pain, repeatedly
and predictably.

Instead, why don't you criticise comment-cache in a constructive
fashion?  Such as by pointing out potential problems it might cause.
