If someone else wants to do that, I can't prevent it, but spreading the code
like this just in the hope to avoid a few KB in the default build (most
people will load newcomment.el sooner or later since it's loaded as soon as
you hit M-; or use auto-fill-mode or ...), is just a waste of time IMNSHO.
