Last time this issue came up I did suggest the person asking for this
feature submit their script when they wrote it.  They never did.  Do you
want to submit a script.  You (or perhaps I can volunteer Gerhard) or
someone can then add the example to the FAQ as well as the earlier

As I and Tony at least said though - a blank comment is often OK (why
require a crufty comment when none is required) - provided there is a
bug number.  So the next release of 2.5.04 has the ability to require a
bug number.
