True, but that's not my point.

Another example:

<div class="hardcoded-class <?php print $extra_class; ?>"></div>

...and I want to comment out "print $extra_class;"...


$var = $var1 + $var2 / 10;

...and I want to comment out "/ 10"

There are numerous examples where "comment selection" could be handy, IMHO.
