A symmetry for indent and outdent together with Comment/Uncomment is 
something I have never seen in any other application and is something I 
would not miss.
This restricts so much I doubt any change would be possible.

Here is what others use:

Application | Comment | Uncomment | AutoIndent | Indent | Outdent
QtCreator: CTRL + "/", CTRL + "/", CTRL+I, -, -
Texniccenter: CTRL+Q, CTRL+W, -, -, -
VisualStudio: CTRL+K+C, CTRL+K+U, CTRL+K+F, -, -
Matlab: CTRL+R, CTRL+T, CTRL+I, CTRL+"[", CTRL+"]"

Note that the Matlab shortcut CTRL+"[" is not possible, sinc CTRL+ALT GR 
+ whatever never works.

I personaly like the shortcuts of Kile and Visualstudio.
