This has the advantage in that if you want to use a few lines from the 
disabled one to include in another one, you don't have to uncomment the 
lines.  My habit has been to select the entire handler and choose 
comment from the script menu; this has the problem that raided lines 
are commented.

I suppose one could put a back tick in front of the name, but it would 
have to be done at the end, also.
