  Description     : comments that do more than just sit there

 Smart comments provide an easy way to insert debugging and tracking code
 into a program. They can report the value of a variable, track the
 progress of a loop, and verify that particular assertions are true.
 Best of all, when you're finished debugging, you don't have to remove them.
 Simply commenting out the "use Smart::Comments" line turns them back into
 regular comments. Leaving smart comments in your code is smart because if you
 needed them once, you'll almost certainly need them again later.
