Mikey - yeah, reference counting would be easy to implement. What wouldn't work is the discrepancy between nesting comments and the current mechanism where you can change the start of a block comment by adding a "/*' tag before a current "/*" tag to add previous lines into a commented block. The two things can't exist in the same ecosystem, and current scripts would break if there were unpaired comment flags like that.

I get it, that's why it's a wishlist and not a "WE'RE DOING THIS" list. I would rather not have the functionality at all rather than add (**), because soon after we'd have (*-*) or (*.*) or (*_*) or worst of all (*|*). However, it is a brand-new universe of LC with 8, so it could be time to break a few eggs, maybe...
