Well, I think it's a personal code style problem. I'd like to write
comments for a new line. Maybe 'sed  "s: ;.*::g" filename' is better.
Note there should be a space before ";" in case you are using a "#;" as
dismich said. But I think we must design a perfectly safe method. 
Anyway, I think it's a big deal now. :-)

To dismich: I don't know there's a "#;" now. Thanks for warning. And I'd
like to know what the "#;" means. :-)
