Since ++ and -- wont see the light of day in ruby, can we use it for comment
notation?

define:
1. -- equal to # comment
2. --- (or more dashes) equal to =begin
   next --- (or more) equal to =end
3. ++ same comment as #1 above
4. +++ same comment as #2 above

Reasons:
1. I like "--", very clean [1]
2. We can faq ++/-- questions as: "they are used for comments" :-)

kind regards -botp

[1] Eg

>cat a1.rb
-----------------------------------
Program Name: Sample_Programming.rb
Purpose: this a sample prg showing 
- same as =begin and =end comments. 
clean, don't you think so? imho
-----------------------------------

p "hello, world"

p "hello, ruby"  -- this is just a sample


-- I know
p "hello, world, ruby."
