I think it's *not* a good idea to implement this
Often you want to temporarily comment blocks which contain already a few
commented lines; 
with the "play-pause"-behavior these lines would be uncommented, forcing you
to recomment them 'manually'.
I often have this annoyance in Scite with ctrl-Q.

Just my 2cts.

At this occasion: TeXworks is really a nice editor and is getting better and
better. I'm using it more and more (with ConTeXt).
Thanks to all the developpers!
