I'm not sure about this. If I have a different language embedded, I
just change the language in the menu (Document | Set Filetype) and the
ctrl-E works just fine. Am I missing something? (note that I don't use
php, so I haven't tested that)
I agree that a multiline comment in addition to line comments would be
kind of useful but that's a different can of worms. I'll probably
stick to snippets to keep my worms under control.
