Okay, either way, it's on Github now: https://github.com/girzel/org-comment.git I didn't realize you could use markers as ids in tabular list mode, that made things a lot easier. I've removed the hydra stuff for now, and also am not automatically turning on the highlighting. I'm still considering a minor mode or something, or at least install it as an Org mode hook.
