1. emacs -Q

2. Goto buffer *scratch*

3. M-x outline-minor-mode

4. Insert:

(defun foo ()

The "(defun foo ()" is matched by outline-regexp.

5. Mark the whole function foo and do M-x comment-region.  This results

;;; (defun foo ()
;;;   (do-this)
;;;   (do-that)
;;;   (do-another-thing))

Now the ";;; (defun foo ()" is still matched by outline-regexp.  That's
the difference between the new default comment-style `indent-or-triple'
and the old default `indent'.

I don't know if having differences in what commented text is matched by
outline-regexp qualifies as a bug, but ideally switching comment-style
shouldn't change that.  So the comment-style `indent-or-triple' should
ensure that ;;; is followed by more than one space if it starts at
column 0.
