Well, I just need a few hands saying autogen.sh (people who have
contributed to Arabeyes have bigger hands of course ;) and I will make
the change.

You're right. If there are discrepencies then.. well, too bad. But, if
you are writing a GTK-based program or a console based one, you will be
commenting your code the same way. If you are opening up any Arabeyes
project, you should be able to see the same commenting style.

I know this may not be what you want, but it is for the greater benefit
of the project as a whole.

It was left to the Quran project authors.. look at the kind of
versioning nightmare it's in ;) I don't even know what is what anymore.
You may have others rally with you on the autogen.sh issue, but on this,
I have Nadim on my side, and he's known to be vicious ;)
