Some files are "human written" and will not be overwritten by VDR.
In those files comments make sense.

Other files are automatically written by VDR, so comments don't make
much sense there.

But I have no problem with allowing comments in all files and just
dropping them when automatically writing back those files.
Is this something you'd like to have?
