May I suggest never simply expanding a comment to take out a chunk of
live code ,such as you've done in your patch? If you have to take out
a chunk of live code, add a *separate* coment about why you're doing
it, and add a distinct set of comment marks around it. This will make
merges *much* cleaner for the future.
