Well, I'd rather calls entities abused than used for this
purpose, XInclude does directly what one needs...

Anyway, C style comment are possible.  A couple of basic
embedded code samples tricks:

 * ...
 * <informalexample><programlisting>
 * GtkWidget *w;
 * <!-- Make an empty line avoiding autoparagraphization -->
 * w = gtk_tree_view_new<!-- -->();  <!-- Prevent linkification -->
 * /<!-- -->* Insert a C comment to the example *<!-- -->/
 * ...
 * </programlisting></informalexample>

And thanks to the fact DocBook processing is typically set
not to preserve comments, the resulting HTML does not
contain any of this rubbish, it only clutters the source
