mapserver.h - Frank goes postal

I'm sorry, but in a fit of drunken wanton behavior, this evening I have
gone through mapserver.h adding "frank style" comment blocks before each
typedef for MapServer objects.  Stuff like:

/*                                mapObj                                */
/*                                                                      */
/*      encompasses everything used in an Internet mapping              */
/*      application.                                                    */

typedef struct map_obj{ /* structure for a map */

I'm not asking others to maintain this style but I just fell off the edge
of sanity paging through mapserver.h trying to find layerObj one more
time.  mapserver.h is a terrible tangle of SWIG ifdefs, and otherwise
indistinguishable (to me) definitions.  At least I feel the above blocks
give major "mileposts" along the way.

BTW, did you know on the GeoTools project developers aren't allowed to
commit code while under the inflence of alcohol?  More the fools are
