Well, given that syntax-ppss is not suitable for fixing back_comment,
the alternatives are not fixing it, substantially amending syntax-ppss,
using my new code, or fixing it some other way.  I really think it
should be fixed.  You don't want syntax-ppss to be changed.  Do you have
an idea for an "other way"?

Is there anything you don't like about it besides the partial
duplication of the syntax-ppss functionality?  If so, what?
