I can see the logic of what you're after, but the problem is that the CL
prompter has always done that--i.e., comments come after the command and
parms. This would be a change to long established behavior--perhaps it
could be made a configuration choice with the default to leave them as is.

[WDSCI-L] Auto-formatting of comments in CL

For the most part I like the way the editor indents and formats CL.
What I don't like is that it moves my comments (change notations)
from the front of the command to the end, so added lines don't stand
out as well, especially if the command spans multiple lines. And no,
I do not display or the date column because it makes it hard to find
all of the changes made for a specific request/project. I was
thinking about submitting an RFE asking for an option that would
allow comments entered in the space before the indent value to be
frozen and not moved, but don't want to bother if others wouldn't be
affected or support the request. What do others think?
