I believe that most comment extraction/document
generators do at least some minimal amount of language
parsing. Thus you would be able to use these without
some, possibly extensive, modifications.

In any case, what value would we get by using the '//'
for eol comments we already have '%' which is actually
shorter to type and just as easy to read. I personnaly
dont see any reason to change this style of comments.
I seams that all we would get from this are comments
that looked like C comments - small return for any
investment.
