|Comment stuff out. Use gcc to comment out a line (takes a count), gc to comment out the target of a motion (for example, gcap to comment out a paragraph), and gc in visual mode to comment out the selection. That's it.
I wrote this because 5 years after Vim added support for mapping an operator, I still couldn't find a commenting plugin that leveraged that feature (I overlooked vimscript #1173). Striving for minimalism, the first version weighs in at just 35 lines of code.
Oh, and it uncomments, too. The above maps actually toggle, and `gcu` uncomments a set of adjacent commented lines. Install repeat.vim, vimscript #2136, to enable repeating with . the line commenting map gcu. (The other maps are repeatable without it.)
