Hi Stephan,

Just for the record, as you found out it doesn't find comment terminators.

IIUC reflow wasn't designed for use in code, more for marked up text
with blank line separated paragraphs. Too many block comments are
explicitly laid out (eg one parameter per line) for it to have much
use in code.

The algorithm is:

current selection or all the non-blank lines before and after the
cursor which have the same indentation.

So you can just select the range you want to re-flow, you don't have
to add spurious newlines.
