Good stuff.

No sorting? 8-(

It's a pity that new comments on a PITS entry can't be posted to one of
the mailing lists (probably pmwiki-devel); that could trigger more
timely discussion.  On the other hand, that would also mean that there
would be discussion that wasn't actually linked with the PITS entry,
which means that information would be lost.
