NB.  I accidentally uploaded this script twice, this instance needs to be deleted,
         and the copy listed under Vim 7.0 should be kept.
         I just don't know how to do this ... sorry.

I don't know for sure that something like this does not already exist in Vim, but if it does, I can't find it.

I recall Cream having this kind of functionallity mapped to <F6>,
so to maintain consistency I've kept the convention.

This uses the current value of &cms / &commentstring to comment and uncomment code.
It works for ranges selected in Visual mode, or for the current line in all modes.
NB. Comment strings may not include '@' or '+'
(I don't know of any languages that use these characters).

Use <F6> to comment, and <S-F6> to uncomment
