In many languages, C and Python included, the formfeed (^L) is just another
piece of whitespace. You don't even need to comment it.
(Pedantic note: I cheated there. My cmd session did not really say "^L".
It gave me the symbol for female, which is code point 12 in the default
character set. I translated it to the VIM equivalent to make the point.)
