There are still quite a few C99 comments left in the code, esp. in code
that's meant for MSVC (which works fine with them) and code for the Mac
(which uses gcc and also doesn't have problems with them). Esp. the
ctypes and libffi code is full of them.

FWIW, this one exists in both SVN trunk and the Python 3.0 branch:

./Modules/_ctypes/callproc.c:
--                         MAKELANGID(LANG_NEUTRAL, SUBLANG_DEFAULT), //
Default language

Personally, I'd find it a lot better to not use C99 style comments in
code that's not specifically meant for a C++-capable compiler like MSVC.
