If you check the archives (ess-help or ess-bugs?), you will see
that this has been discussed before.  comment-dwim is an Emacs
function that is not a part of stable XEmacs, but
you can try the latest beta, 21.5.28; don't bother trying
the Emacs version as it won't work.  So, that means
XEmacs users, most likely, have never heard of it.  I gave it a
whirl and it does appear to work, but it seems to have trouble
with multiple comment symbols.
