update-exim4.conf --keepcomments

Personally I love the stuff Andreas Metzler has done with the config.
Makes it TONS more managable. Might I even suggest that Philip Hazel
(Exim's author) adopt it... or include at least a way to do that.

If you were to look through the script you see some other options as

removecomments is if you change:
> UPEX4C_comments=no

> UPEX4C_comments=yes
