How about a way to mark my private comments? I now use #H# on each line
so I can fast forward with my $EDITOR to my comments.

How about adding some option like:
	--keep-notes "#H#"
Or even with regex support:
	--keep-notes "^#H#"

Indicating which comments to keep. As you put comments above the
parameter it would be a reasonable request that people put their own
remarks above the parameter line.
