Debugging code: comment or remove?

How do the Nitpickers feel about debugging code: should I excise it from my code before submission to the Nitpickers,
or can I leave it in, commented?
I'm doing 1b, and for debugging I print an 80-char
'scale'. I'd like to leave that code in as comments so I can save it later, without the joy of saving two versions of the same exercise. But of course I'll whack it if the nitpickers say so.

Take it out before you submit it. It is just more for the nitpicker to read.
