Yeah, there are a lot of situations where the existing comments system
would be superior.  If they coexist, that could be awesome.

There are a few possibilities:

1) Create a new macro for the new comments system (discussion.py?)
2) Move the current comments system to a new macro (quickcomments.py?)
3) Have a config option to choose between the two for a given wiki

I'm leaning towards #1, for the sake of compatibility.  #2 might break
more stuff than I want to be responsible for, and #3 just seems like a
big decision when starting a new wiki.  -rt
