Hi Alan,

Before I read this thread, I never really paid attention to the fact that 
syntax-ppss needed widening; I would guess (but of course I can't be sure) that 
many did the same thing. In fact, I've only ever used syntax-ppss to decide 
whether I was in a comment, or in a string, and possibly where it sarted, so if 
syntax-ppss was changed my code would benefit.
On the other hand, if a better behaved alternative is introduced, my code will 
have to be manually updated; thus I would very much like it if syntax-ppss was 
changed :)

Just offering an opinion of course. Thanks for your efforts on this!
