escaping "//" in acediff

The Configuration Guide says that in .ace files, "Two consecutive forward
slashes (//) signify the start of a comment. Any text following them is
ignored. You can escape one of them with a backslash if you really want two
forward slashes."

This works for xace, but acediff seems to ignore everything after "\//" or
"\/\/" too.  Is there any way to escape the // in acediff?
