A while ago, we discussed whether to stop stripping files of
comments and indentation.  I've just found a good reason not to

the rule is in the right place.

The two files can't be diffed and I'm going bug-eyed trying to spot
where the problem occurs.  Perhaps if we just skipped the stripper?
There doesn't appear to be a performance loss when the unstripped
version is run, and the extensive comments are, in fact, intended to
