[racket-dev] Comments and DrRacket

I tend to put a lot of comments not just at the beginning of
procedures but also in the body of the procedures, usually above lines
of code instead of to the right because the comments can be fairly
long and multi-line.  This makes it easier to understand the procedure
on the one hand but because it spreads the procedure out over several
screens makes it harder to follow also.

For that reason I thought a nice feature in DrRacket might be a menu
button  to either display or hide comments, so you could see the
comments and then click the button and disappear them and see the
entire or most of the procedure to see the program flow.
