If I understand Urban correctly, he wants to insert a new comment block -
like say some header text - he does not want to know how to (un)comment
existing lines etc.

Meaning if I'm in C mode I want to say "M-x insert-my-header" and it does

// Filename: 
// Date started:

but in Perl mode it does

# Filename:
# Date started:

At least that's what I've wished for a while. Thought I'd learn enough elisp
to write a function to do that. But when is the question!
