Actually, I don't have anything in mind. Although I like C++ comments (and C++ in general) I have no issues writing C89 (or K&R  for that matter) code.

I just want to know what constitutes "breaking the build" so that I do the right thing when it happens. 

(I don't know why Colin went off on C++ comments. My original post was about an anonymous union.)
