4.1.3 Comment Indentation

;;;The indentation of lines starting with three semicolons remains unchanged.
;;Lines starting with two semicolons are indented like the surrounding code.
;Lines starting with a single semicolon are indented to a minimum column.

The indentation of comments starting in column 0 is never changed.
