I do something similar in PHP:

     // a human-readable comment
     # disabled code

That way, after everything's working, I can run a command that removes  
all commented code, while leaving the actual comments intact.

Anyway, I'm curious about what you're doing since I've been doing more  
Python and // isn't available there. Don't you have a lot of code  
that's indented and would therefore start with "# " when you comment  
it out? How do you distinguish that from a textual comment?

Aw, don't tell me you're one of those people that uses tabs to  
indent. :)
