more general (and thus more useful to those people who aren't among the
rare few who use 8 color ttys and whose red is not readable and who haven't

font-lock-keywords, except it's applied only to comments (with the buffer
narrowed to just the comment so that comment-start-skip matches correctly,
without needing font-lock-comment-start-skip).  This way we could highlight
all nested comments in SML, or we could highlight the "*" used on some
continuation lines in some multiline C commenting styles, and people could
set it to nil if they don't care about the feature, and major modes could
add stuff to it, e.g. to highlight javadoc directives, ...
