Package: bibtool
Version: 2.46-2

When I use bibtool on a file that contains comments (on
lines starting with the '%' character), I get messages like

*** BibTool WARNING:  (line 641 in ./refs.bib): 141 non-space characters ignored.

could have been a malformed entry etc) but actually it's
only triggered by a comment.  Should bibtool be aware of
comments and say "I'm ignoring the comment" (or say nothing
at all)?
