      Description

      Comment handling is not currently fully documented / tested.

      There are several possible situations:
      1) trailing comment following one or more values
      2) comment marker starts in the first column
      3) comment marker starts in the first non-whitespace column

      How should these be handled?
      1) The trailing comment should be ignored
      2) Entire line should be ignored, i.e. don't treat it as a blank line
      3) This is trickier: if whitespace is being trimmed, treat as 2, else treat as 1, i.e. there is a single value containing whitespace

      It might also be useful to consider returning comments to the application program as part of CSVRecord.
