Give the upgrade_MailScanner_conf script the "--keep-comments" 
command-line option, and it will.

I thought of that one a very long time ago :-)

The only reason it's not the default is that occasionally I add to the 
comments for existing settings (such as listing new virus scanners), and 
it won't pick up these new comments if the --keep-comments switch is 
supplied. But I admit that I rarely do that anyway...
