This is sort of possible by making a “character class” setting for 
the scope.

But this then affects everything that works on words, e.g. moving word 
left/right, selecting word, etc., will also treat it as one unit, which 
is often undesured.

Another possibility is to overload mouse clicks for this scope, right 
now we only have the ability to overload single-click, you’d need to 
create a new macro with:

	scope selector: comment & dyn.modifier.option
	semantic class: callback.mouse-click
	content: ( { command = 'selectCurrentScope:'; } )

This macro will trigger whenever option-clicking inside a comment and 
it’ll do a “select current scope”, hence this is a way to select 
the entire comment.

You’d replace `comment` in the above with the scope of your `+foo+` 

I can probably add `callback.mouse-doubleclick` which would get rid of 
the option modifier requirement.
