Well I can have a look at it, but to be sure I get what you want;

The problem is that lines that start with #. should not be treaded as
comments. Ideally you would want a extra field which displays this
information. Would it also be ok for you to have them silently
ignored (but kept in the file of course). In the files I translated
these lines usually show the field type, which is usually not that
