Commenting AS Code Wishlist Feature

I noticed in Visual Studio.Net there is a very neat feature that can be implemented in the next version of of Flash.

By wrapping the comments in the code with XML tags such as:

//comment here

VS.NET has an option to compile an XML document called doc.xml which contains all these comments structured with the namespace, class and method they belong to.

This would be a great feature for components and any other piece of code that requires documentation, which is pretty much a standard. It could even produce the right skeleton XML for the help section in the reference panel, when building components.

Just a thought…
