Re: [Rd] Any plans for commenting out region via something like " /* */ "?

Thanks to Peter and Brian both for pointing out my second option.

For those wondering, I'm adapting a third party tool (hence no integration with ESS, for which M-x comment-region works really much better as of the last few releases), and working within a commented region which could be contextually determined as "commented-out code" would simplify the process. The second option just needs a bit more care (i.e. mapping

   "/*" = if(FALSE){
   "*/" = }
can be done if I'm careful. Though it wasn't necessary that "/*" be used, just something that was unambiguously identified.
