This patch only changes a comment, so I'm committing it as "obvious".

The point is that I don't intend to spend the time to fix the bug 
because implementing the fold_extract_last is both a work around and an 
optimization, but future ports might encounter the same problem and 
hopefully the pointer will save future readers some confusion.
