Apropos: probably even more nice inside of uncommented code would be
to insert

%    \end{macrocode}
%  <point at sensible indentation>
%    \begin{macrocode}

In short: it would also be nice to have a way to _split_ a macrocode
environment.  C-u - C-c C-e macrocode RET perhaps?  Or C-c C-z
("suspend" environment) without prompting, just using the current
environment?  In that case one would probably have to enter at least
the comment character manually so that the outcommented environment
gets suspended instead of the uncommented one.
