to convert to velocity/vpp coming from m4
m4's commenting structure with a different begin ` and end ' syntax is very
convenient for nesting and handles newlines very conveniently. Conversely to
Bill's quoting proposal with single quotes etc., (see also
suggest that text inside such quotes still gets rendered.
Bill had further ideas (e.g. a "connect" directive) on the vpp mailing list -->
