I like the idea, because it would save several steps (even when a
keystroke is used for commenting, you still have to highlight the block).
However, don't like ` for it because it's tricky on a German keyboard
layout. Why not an easy combination of ((+ and +)) ? Or additionally to
the quote sign '(( and '))
