Yes, one might regret the inability to nest comments; single line 
comments in C-derived languages have the nice property that they could 
live inside block comments, which can be handy when you want to 
temporarily hide a block of code possibly containing comments; say when 
reformatting/restructuring a large piece of code, and working to get it 
to compile piece by piece.  But nested comments would be superior still, 
although maybe a bit more irritating to parse.
