Commenting System

Feb 28, 2010 at 5:20 PM

I currently use Disqus on my site for comments instead of the built-in commenting system for several reasons.  This has gotten me thinking about this functionality, and I'm wondering if there might be an opportunity for future enhancement here - either some sort of event/plugin architecture for changing the comment system or even allowing comment system selection as part of the main application (or a combination of the two).  I can go in and replace the current commenting code however I want, as long as I can just use HTML/Javascript or write a chalk extension/widget, but this loses out on some of the features that the system currently provides regarding comments.  What are everyone's thoughts on this?
