Raymond Hettinger <rhettinger at users.sourceforge.net> added the comment:

-1 on the change.  Comments in CSV files are not a common use case.  
I'm less worried about cluttering the C code and more concerned about 
cluttering the API, making the module harder to learn and remember.

Also, it is already trivial to implement filtering using str.startswith
().  This proposed patch is not worth the rare case where it saves a 
line or two code that was already crystal clear.
