Destination: Foreskin!

[ #8071 ]
Dear Log,

Here's a hack for making a comment in RTF:

{\*\qqqqqqqq
     any amount of comment text -- just has to be syntactally parseable RTF, which isn't hard.
}

This works because "{\*\foo" means "if you don't know what 'foo' means, ignore this whole thing up to the closing brace. You just have to hope that foo or qqqqqqqq or whatever, doesn't get used. Maybe I'll put all my comments in:

{\*\foreskin
     any amount of comment text
}

...on the assumption that the Microsoft is unlikely to use "foreskin" as a command (or as the spec calls these things, "destinations").
