Is it possible to put comments in the client config files (those in the path specified by "client-config-dir") for OpenVPN, i.e. something beginning with "#" or "//" or the like? If so, what is the appropriate comment character?

The '#' prefix is the designated comment tag. The examples on the openvpn website use '#' comments extensively.

Also, the semi-colon - ';' - is used to comment out single lines or items.
