Yeah, /* … */ doesn’t nest, that’s really a language
limitation — for this reason I am using // as the primary comment
character, since that nests nicely.
The default for C and Objective-C was having /* … */ as primary, but
I just changed that. FYI this is a preference in the C bundle.

It is a toggle. I.e. just hit ⌘/ again.

With // as the primary comment character, I think you’ll find ⌘/
nicer, as you can then comment partially commented regions.
But I often make use of #if 0 … #endif to disable code in C. This
also nests nicely and TextMate will render the disabled part as a
comment, and it allows you to use #else, for example:
// old code
// new code
Now you can just change 0 to 01 (or just 1) to switch from the new
code back to the old vice versa.
