Hi Users,

	Our SGE users here repeatably have tried to comment out lines in 
runscripts beginning with an environment variable. They end up not 
leaving a space between the # and $ and jobs die with misleading messages.

	I'm sure this is a pretty common gotcha and I know you can redefine #$ 
to be something else. I am looking for a robust suggestions that the 
average script will not accidentally create when commenting out a line.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.
