Euphoria Ticket #638: Update 'value' and 'get' to accept values acceptable toversion 4 interpreter

This feature request is more in the nature of "Wouldn't it be nice" rather than "Must have".

In std/get.e the functions "value" and "get" will read values acceptable to the Euphoria version 3 interpreter, which may include comments beginning --.

It would be appropriate to update these functions to ignore the new C-style comments and to accept the new multiline strings. Perhaps they could even accept a dollar as a sequence terminator?
