Great! You are the second person to explicitly request this feature
(I'm sure there are others, like me, but I'm fixed with a quick typing
of M-x comment-region or C-u M-x comment-region, the curse of using
Emacs forever) -- while technically, Emacs modes can't bind that
particular key seq (ctrl-c non-escaped/non-control chars are reserved
for the user, supposedly), we could add a function to do this which
you would add somewhere, i.e
to your .emacs, or similar.
