Comment WDL lines with Ctrl+/ in Sublime Text

There is a nice WDL syntax highlighter for Sublime Text described on the WDL web site. However, the highlighter does not provide a shortcut for commenting out a line or block of lines. I found that this works well to implement a commenter using the Ctrl+/ keys.
Create the file $HOME/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/wdl.tmPreferences with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
   <key>name</key>
   <string>WDL Comment</string>
   <key>scope</key>
   <string>source.wdl</string>
   <key>settings</key>
   <dict>
      <key>shellVariables</key>
      <array>
         <dict>
            <key>name</key>
            <string>TM_COMMENT_START</string>
            <key>value</key>
            <string># </string>
         </dict>
      </array>
   </dict>
   <key>uuid</key>
   <string>31509f93-e4f4-4a88-8fc6-82ff082e849d</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Don't worry about the reference to Apple Computer; this works fine on a Red Hat box.
