I had a look at the docs for this.
I could see how to convert this to a custom filter.

I see you already have one for Java comment stripping.
The JavaScript one presumably very similar, though not
quite the same. However I looked at the code for StripJavaComments
as an example and it is wrong, e.g. k=a/b converts to k=ab

What about doing it with a regexp though?
Is there any way to use a general regexp substitution
as a filter? I couldn't see how off hand. It needs to
be whole file substitute, not line by line.
