/* Eight single-bit flags have the following meanings:
37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47
  1. This character is the first of a two-character comment-start sequence.
  2. This character is the second of a two-character comment-start sequence.
  3. This character is the first of a two-character comment-end sequence.
  4. This character is the second of a two-character comment-end sequence.
  5. This character is a prefix, for backward-prefix-chars.
  6. The char is part of a delimiter for comments of style "b".
  7. This character is part of a nestable comment sequence.
  8. The char is part of a delimiter for comments of style "c".
  Note that any two-character sequence whose first character has flag 1
  and whose second character has flag 2 will be interpreted as a comment start.
