It does.
It even works with a hash in the keys but this would also require to
include the hash character in the wordchars (see section 'Special' in

No idea why it didn't work for me before, I thought I tested it in all
possibilities but obviously I didn't.

But an hash character at the beginning of the line is still a comment
character because it can't be escaped. I'll add this note to the bug
report even I think this won't be changed.
