Nope.  Breaks too many scripts. 

FWIW, I recently learned that there widely used tools which parse
--list-packets.  An option I always considered a debug interface.  When
I added lines '# foo' the scripts broke despite that I took caution to
use a de-facto comment standard for these new lines.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
