You said there haven't been F77 compilers for 30 years.  This assumes
backwards compatibility of Fortran completely non-conflicting
features.  I am asserting this is false.

I'm going to write some tests and get back to you.  But I know for a
fact that the IBM XLF compiler chokes on F77 comment style when it is
compiling in F90+ mode.
