acediff problem with "//"

acediff should treat "/\/" or "\/\/" as a literal "//" rather than a comment,
like tace and xace do, but it doesn't. This makes it impossible to use
acediff for incremental updates, which I would dearly love to do and is
otherwise quite feasible. I have many records that contain URLs so
handling "//" is essential.
I complained about this in 1996 and again in 2000:
As of version 4_9p it still isn't fixed. I'm afraid it fell through
the cracks. I know how easy it is for this to happen. But, please?
