I find this a bit dangerous. If the code being commented out happens
to ave an unbalanced \fi you'll have unintentional behavior. For
ordinary text there shouldn't be a problem.
It is so easy to comment/uncomment multiple lines in TeXShop (and many
other text editors that support (La)TeX) that I never use \iffalse...
\fi any more. It is also much more obvious that the code is commented
out if you use %... .
