The memoir class implements the package comments.sty (or some  
modification of it). However, the command \newcomment{} that I need  
is defined in memoir, not in comments.sty. As you say, I should  
probably be able to accomplish what I want using the original  
comment.sty instead of memoir's implementation of it; nevertheless, I  
use memoir quite a bit, so this is not a limitation for me right now.
