So then Java and PHP and all the other filetypes should be changed to //
style comments too, since they suffer from the same issue, except with
them AFAIK, // comments are actually valid code in all versions of their
languages, unlike say C and CSS. No matter what happens, CSS is always
going to have problems when inserting comments where nesting will occur.
It's not such a huge deal since its easy for users to change to their
preference, but it seems inconsistent to have the defaults be a strange
mix of the two comment styles. The defaults, IMO, should be whatever
style is idiomatic to each particular language, and my observation is
that /**/ is far more widely used in C than C++ style // comments are.

Currently it's the same setting AFAIK (in filetypes.*) for both features.
