      Thanks for the input, I'm just getting started trying to understand
      and use your suggestions.

      It's going to sound horribly lame, but I'm already stuck just trying
      to call the function you wrote.
      This isn't the way, I can see
      :markchange <press enter> NOT

      So how is it called?

      Also I'm afraid I was not very clear about what I'm after. So
      explaining a bit further.

      I didn't expect the code to try to identify anything special in the
      selected section, like an uncommented line. Just to comment it all
      after asking me for Keywords.

      A typical entry in a rc file with some helpful commented lines might
      look like:

      # helpful info
      # commented value

      Then I might add

      # helpful info
      # commented value
      uncommented value

      Then I would select those three lines, call my handy wrapping code
      which would first prompt for keywords, then insert what I gave
      it along with the commented word `Keywords:' like:

      # Keywords: prompted words

      then Todays date

      # [todays date]

      next - it would comment every thing selected:

      # # helpful info
      # # commented value
      # uncommented value

      And finally the closing symbol

      # &&

      So the end result would be:

      # Keywords: prompted words
      # [todays date]
      # # helpful info
      # # commented value
      # uncommented value

      Last step... I would manually uncomment the line I wanted:

      # Keywords: prompted words
      # [todays date]
      # # helpful info
      # # commented value
      uncommented value

      (Sorry if this seems a bit over the top... but wasn't able to make
      clear what I was after and my example was actually incorrect too.)
