allow the use of double slash flow comments #17008

Description of the Change

Currently, a Flow comment needs to be used with the following syntax: /* @flow */. This PR allows the usage of // @flow as well.

Why Should This Be In Core?

To allow flexibility the same way that both 'use babel' and "use babel" are supported.


It's a convenience.

Possible Drawbacks

It is kind of a trivial addition.

Verification Process

I wrote a test case for this, but I was having trouble getting npm test or script/test to work for me. I got an error like so:

AssertionError [ERR_ASSERTION]: More than one application to run tests against was found. 

I'm not sure how I'm supposed to develop on Atom if I already have Atom installed on my computer which I imagine is causing this error.

Since tests (including the new one) pass and the change is very straightforward, I'm ok 🚢 this at this point. You cool with that @lee-dohm ?
