[racket-dev] comment boxes

I've been kinda hoping that someday the "binary" format is turned into a 
plain text format that's usable in any editor or other tool.

For example, DrRacket comment boxes could be stored as normal Scheme 
comments with a cookie token in the comment that is a hint to DrRacket 
to treat it as a comment box when loading.  (There could be a simple 
convention within this comment block for escaping 
non-comment-terminators that look like terminators.)
