(Debugging) For the annotation * to be added back to Inform

Intended so that people can note comments in transcripts
without the game interpreting their remarks as commands. (this is a feature of the Inform 6 6/11 library)

    This would hardly be difficult, but we removed it because we had the impression that it annoyed more people than it helped. If feedback shows this to be wrong, we can reconsider.

        Devil's Advocate: when having beta-testers or focus group testing with people brand-new to the form (or even just inform), they may not know or consistently use the *, lulling the author into a false sense of security.

        Perhaps as an alternative, every parser error in a debug build could prepend an * or other searchable thing, since most any comment anybody types in will cause some sort of parser error.
