Nope, no multi-line comment.  The python-mode package which is available for
Emacs and XEmacs supports commenting a block of text.  You can also use
triple-quoted strings:

    """
    This is a multi-
    line
    comment
    (sort of)
    """

It gets evaluated but immediately popped from the execution stack.
