 I'm currently exploring the code, as a preliminary to writing a static
analysis tool. At the moment, I'm stuck in the lexer, where I have two

Firstly, embedded comments seem to be forbidden. That is, a block such
	/* bla /* more bla */ even more bla*/
will be passed to the parser as
	even more bla */
Is that normal ? Is that desired ?

Secondly, regular expressions. From what I gather, a regular expression
containing a "x" anywhere can be multiline. Is that it ? It sounds too
strange to be true.
