I cannot see the point in wasting time changing the format in existing
code. When it comes to understanding existing code, the comment format
will make no difference to any developer sufficiently experienced to
understand code as complex as gnucash.  In addition there is always
the slight possibility of accidentally changing code so possibly
introducing bugs.  Surely there are more important things to do.
