why no block comments in Python?

I have found that some editors colourize text based on parsing a
section of text around what is visible. Long, multi-line comments or
strings might not then get colored correctly.

Personally, I do use block comments in other languages but maybe they
should not exist in finished code for reasons already given by others,

Cheers, Paddy.
