Please (re)move "# ie. nothing" from example config file

Bug Description


the example config file has the following lines included:

# for cat:
#compressarg= # ie. nothing

Since there is config/script syntax that allows for comments at the end of normal, active lines, when I tried to do an uncompressed tar I just removed the first # from the line:

compressarg= # ie. nothing

which resulted in my Cronjob trying to send me a rather big uncompressed tar file instead of writing one to the backup directory. :)

I'd suggest to move the notice to the line before, so it could look like

# for cat, nothing

Sorry for providing no patch, don't have bzr at hand.

Probably it would also be a good idea to check for unescaped # in command lines before running them. :)
