Even though I can easily mark such a block and use the general
emacs  comment key    M-;
to comment each of those lines,
I often prefer

 if(FALSE) {



which in the case of a single function definition which is only
one R expression can even do without the braces  {, }
and hence very easily activated/deactivated.
