Oh well, hell then. Use comments in your function definitions to
explicitly state what you mean.
Something like:

HRESULT CSwBusiness::VerifyBusinessAddress
//
// Check Address
// BR: If !IsOnlineBusiness, then make address fields required
// BR: If Address changed, calc new LatLong, InterleavedLatLon
//
(
        IsboContext * piSboContext,
        // [in] Needed to get datasource property
        _Recordset * piRecordset,
        // [in/out] relevant recordset
        ULONG *pulNewInterleavedLatLong,
        // [out] returns current InterleavedLatLong (for subq. bus.
rules).
        BOOL* pfDirty
        // [out] set TRUE if fields modified
)

Would have thought this was obvious,
Bill
