Hmm, the Emacs lisp manual has a section on commenting styles.  This
section suggests that comments starting with three semicolons are
subordinate to comments starting with four semicolons.

However, some browsing through the source code of Emacs learns that
commenting style is not very consistent, even within files.  Some
people do seem to treat four semicolons comments as less important
than three semicolon comments.

Considering this, I suppose it's best to leave `lisp-outline-level'
alone, since this problem can't be solved for everyone and some people
may have come to rely on the current situation.

Sorry to have bothered you with this.
