[TxMt] Spelling in comments

In looking at how spell checking in comments works, and searching the  
archives for alternatives and suggestions, I can see spelling is  
disabled in comments because, as Alan points out, "a lot of comments  
are actually commented out code." Good point, and I can clearly see  
there is no one way that can make everyone happy.

In my case, a tremendous amount of useful documentation is in code  
comments, and spelling errors make the code less professional. I am  
constantly going to an external editor, or typing the comment into a  
blank area of the document inside a quote so that TextMate thinks it  
is a string, then removing the quote and hitting command+/. I'm  
thinking about crating a shell script or bundle or something to do all  

Does anyone have any more "elegant" suggestions?

It would be great if there was a way, for example, to have a menu item  
(perhaps even a bundle) that could just spell check the selection  
regardless of the context.

Thank you for any suggestions.
