Comment (by uniwangshan@…):

 I second this request. I'm trying to replace a 3rd party parsing library
 using boost::program_options, but the original config has comments
 starting with ; rather than #.

 for example:
 ; this is a comment

 Because program_options hardcoded # as comment and won't allow any line
 without = except sections, I had to abort this plan.

 It would be much better to ignore weird looking lines rather than stop the
 whole parsing.
