How can I interate through issue comments in a SIL calculated field?

I would like to create a calculated field using Kepler Custom Fields plug-in and SIL. The field value should reflect if the issue contains some specific formatted comment message. Unfortunately I cannot find out how to iterate through all comments of an issue and perform string-matching against them.

Is there a way to loop though all issue comments in SIL?

Have written two support routines using the SIL guide: getCommentCount(key) and getComment(key, index).
