Comments in Squeak are wonderfully simple: just write whatever you want 
wherever you want. Comment out whatever chunk of code, anywhere, easily. 
Prepare code in comment to be used only within a debugger - there are 
many ways to play with the comments syntax. Please do not take this 
simplicity and the freedom it allows away from us, and remember that no 
two coders have the same pratices and preferences. When possible, we 
should allow all styles.
