Here's a question for the programmers among you.

Suppose you have a language with a multi-line comment system, so anything between /* and */ inclusive is ignored. You might use it like this:

    printf("I found ###")

What should happen in the following example:

    printf("I found */")

I don't mean what does your favourite language do, I mean what do you think the above should do?
