just I guess:
screwing multiplication shouldn't be a problem since the
asterisk is the comment symbol just if it is the first symbol of a
fresh line.

And a little quick and dirty trick to keep */ as the ending of a
block comment maybe is to define "* ", i.e. asterisk  followed by
a white space, as the start of a fence comment?

If it works it's not perfect but a big improvement in my opinion.
