readline(1) says, in .SH INITIALIZATION FILE,

  Lines beginning with a # are comments.

This suggests that "#" only starts a comment when at the
beginning of a line. But as far as I can see,

  "abc": "xyz" # foo

is equivalent to

  "abc": "xyz"

If that is the case, perhaps the man page should say "a # at the
beginning of a line or following non-quoted white space marks
the beginning of a comment" or some such.
