Gosh, this must have gotten buried in my inbox a long time ago, and I
completely forgot about it... Sorry about that!

> Emacs should treat `#;' as whitespace, nothing more.
Of course, that's also incorrect with its own set of problems (mostly
indentation), but admittedly, those problems are easier for the user to
What problems? I think it would be perfectly reasonable for #; not to
affect indentation except inasmuch as it moves code following it on
the same line by two columns just like two spaces would. For example,
I think the following is reasonable indentation:
(cond ((foo? bar) baz)
((quux? zot) mumble) #;
((grog? swat) zoogle)
#; (else (frotz)))
I wouldn't use the second two examples myself, because it takes zero
effort to make an editor treat #; as the start of a line comment
(e.g., Edwin does this) and that works perfectly well as long as you
don't put anything interesting on the line.
Can you try the patch below?
I tried it. Seems to work on a couple simple cases I threw at it, but
I haven't tried it in anger yet.
