Alt-Double Click doesn't sound very discoverable.  Even if I knew that  
shortcut I'd probably forget at some point.  Maybe having something  
position:fixed would be better because there is something visible and  
reachable at all times.  The problem then would be automatically  
determining which section is being commented on.  Its certainly not as  
straight-forward as clicking on the section.  Just some ideas.  I'm  
very interested in seeing a commenting system.
