Apart from the comments given in the webpage (which I think are stupid
"users-are-stupid" reasons, and apply equally to the other keywords
anyway), the biggest reason I stopped doing this is because my sources
were always out-of-date, which often didn't help when debugging (as the
line the symbols thought I was debugging was always wrong by 2 lines -
the 2 lines added as log comments).

I'd still like to add the log comments to a changelog text file though,
but I have to do it manually at the moment.
