Yep, same here, I also oppose to this strongly.
The comments are the stuff that *really* matters.
There are a LOT of useful hints in there that would *never* get written
in the AppDB if it weren't for the fact that you can simply babble something
in a comment instead of telling someone to maybe add this info for you in
3 weeks or so.
Now if only you could actually combine the content of comments back into
the main entry and then *delete* those now useless comments,
that'd be the only thing missing here in order to be able to create
a really good HOWTO for an app.
That would be the job of a maintainer for a specific app, of course.
