Perhaps, for clarity's sake, you could post this alternative patch here,
or if it's big, put it into a scratch branch.  Then, at least we'll all
know that we're talking about the same thing.

I'm not sure what you want them for.  The "alternative patch" didn't
scan comments correctly all the time when I looked at it, just as the
current back_comment doesn't.  But, post the patch, remind me precisely
what you want tested, and I'll do it.

Constructive criticism of comment-cache would be most welcome.
