What's the advantage compared to (the do-what-I-mean behavior of)
`comment-region' [1]?  Especially when using the new temporary
transient mark mode commands in (to be) Emacs 22? [2]

,----[ `C-h k M-;' ]
| M-; runs the command comment-region
|    which is an interactive autoloaded Lisp function in `newcomment'.
| It is bound to M-;.
| (comment-region BEG END &optional ARG)
| Comment or uncomment each line in the region.
| With just C-u prefix arg, uncomment each line in region BEG .. END.
| Numeric prefix ARG means use ARG comment characters.
| If ARG is negative, delete that many comment characters instead.
| By default, comments start at the left margin, are terminated on each line,
| even for syntax in which newline does not end the comment and blank lines
| do not get comments.  This can be changed with `comment-style'.
| The strings used as comment starts are built from
| `comment-start' without trailing spaces and `comment-padding'.

Bye, Reiner.
