You got me lost there.  What else is LaTeX-syntactic-comments supposed
to be about?

I don't think it is worth the bother.  We don't turn the code into
verbatim all around, anyway (though I'd wish that if we do
indent-region or fill-region, that coming across
%    \begin{macrocode}
is considered as introducing verbatim until
%    \end{macrocode}
is encountered.  While I'd want normal LaTeX-mode to hold for editing
purposes inside of the environment.

In short: I ultimately want indent-region and fill-region _not_ to be
equivalent to <down> <tab> <down> <tab> ... but keep the context from
formatting.  Could also speed up matters instead of looking through
the document for current-environment all the time.

Of course, this is not actually useful in the context of quote
insertion: when we are typing the quote character, there is no context
from preceding comments, and so the location would not considered
