I personally find C++ style comments more pleasant on the eyes for
single-line comments, and they are part of the C99 spec.

Can someone explain why they think /* */ sucks less than // ? It
doesn't seem like it is for compatibility when st and dwm require C99
anyway. An internet search did not turn up much, apologies if I've
missed an obvious link or previous discussion.
