I don't know what these "comments" contribute to later understanding
of the development decisions.  If hardly any, then there is no reason
to object to deleting them.  If they are important, then we should
fight deleting them.  Perhaps it is worth consulting a US lawyer
about whether GNOME has to fear a Canadian censorship law.
