Not all lexers have a comment string. For example forth has lpeg.S('|\
\'), Io has lpeg.P('#') + '//', etc. These patterns cannot be easily

Instead I have gone the language-specific module route like with run
commands. This is in latest hg (r560). Supplemental comments can be
found here:

Note the incompatibility with 2.2 beta. Available only from hg. Thanks
to Brian Schott for supplying the comment table.
