I agree that text looks nicer, but it cannot be used to comment a large
module. I too find the line breaks after commas annoying and avoid their use
in (* *) style comments. Taking a hint from Luci Ellis, I also reformat the
colour of the (* *) style comments so that they appear in 50% grey, making
them easier to distinguish from the code.
