I agree that red is hard to read on an 8-color console.  White reads
much better.  While I don't like it that comment delimiters look
different than the comment text, I think that the benefit of having
readable comment text outweighs that disadvantage.

Just customizing font-lock-comment-face to white (and not using
font-lock-comment-delimiter-face) on an 8-color console doesn't cut it
as that makes the comments hard to spot.
