I remember a mail from several years ago where Flex developers said they had 
no interest in supporting an ancient C standard when C99 has been out for 
years. (I think it was about using stdint.h or something like that.) So I am 
not surprised that they are now using C99 comments (which ARE compliant to 
the current C standard, and have been for 16 years (!)).
