While we're on this topic, it would also be nice if one could Merge a
sequence of Input and text or header cells, starting with an Input cell,
and have all the non-Input cells be auto-converted to comment lines.
I like to develop and test longish routines by coding them as one Input
cell per statement so I can step down through the routine one cell at a
time, together with occasional comment cells in header or text format
interspersed between these input cells to remind me of what I'm doing.
(*--I guess I could put the (* *) labels on the comment cells from the
start -- but why not let Mathematica do the work?--*)
