I have used emacs quite a lot in the past (a few years actually), and had quite a comfortable time with many things (including comments). Since then I have moved to a company where vi is the standard, and although it took me a while to get used to it (what in the %$!* is escape mode?)

Although the answer is negative, I have learned about a few new tools that can make comments easier.
