I tried something like that, but that generated 32 pages. Had properly
to do with the inbetween.

I changed it to:
\def\PageWithComment[#1]{
\page
#1
\blank
{\switchtobodyfont[2.3em]
\getnoflines{\dimexpr\pagegoal-\pagetotal-3\lineheight\relax}
\thinrules[n=\noflines]
}
\page}

For the inbetween by thinrules I use 1.4em, but to get the same space
I need to use here 2.3em. Do not know why.
