I'm just emailing to say great work, and to put in a suggestion for something I've wanted to see for a long time: multiline comments or some equivalent.

It's not something that makes or breaks my experience with R, but something I've often wanted, and something I think prevents me from commenting more in my R code.

I know I could tinker with an editor and get the same results by adding a # to each line, but sometimes such a thing isn't possible, and I would like it natively handled in R.

Seeing as how R comments look like other scripting language comments (e.g., Perl), some similar POD convention involving = might be good; e.g.,

=begin
=end

or

#=
#=

or something like that.

Anyway, just a wish. Not going to be horribly sad or anything. Just putting it out there.

Thanks.
