This is what the new comment treatment brought us
{I hate it as well; also applies to example(.)}.

It seemed very hard to correctly attach comments to expressions,
(remember all the misplaced comments in 0.63.x ?).
so now the parser already throws all comments into the trash can.
No way to see them anymore.
AFAIK, we only see them with functions that have "keep.source"
Peter Dalgaard will be able to elaborate.
