We've actually tried it both ways and think the current behavior is a 
feature.  Much of the time when you outdent a comment intentionally, 
you're going to want to start a new block with the next line.  The 
exception that you ran into is when code is pasted into place and the 
indentation is inconsistent.  Probably the best thing to do at this 
point is to select the new block and indent it appropriately using the 
indent or outdent commands.
