We're developers. The script editor puts up its own menu bar where 
several options can be changed on the fly. Variable checking and 
commenting are handled in the Edit menu, and I'd put a "Show default 
scripts" toggle there. It seems intuitive and consistent to me. The 
Debug menu is another option, but not as closely related.
