I might or might not agree per-se, but it seems to me that how you  
delineate right-of-code comments is pretty minor compared to the  
things we really need to worry about:

1) code correctness
2) ease of accepting "free" contributions
3) ease of code maintenance

I guess that equates to "allow //, at least for right-of-code  
comments".  I'll shut up now.
