Attached please find a demonstration patch which moves comment display
to its own tab on the node view page. Admin may choose this new view or
old view.

The patch needs work still:
- comment control form redirects to the node page after submit. Should
be comment page
- same for comment posting form
- probably more

I hope someone gets inspired to finish this patch. I won't revisit this
for a while.

oh yeah - also on the TODO list is to comment URLs to always point to
comment.module and never to node/x#comment-cid or node/x#comment-new
and so on. then comment.module can work out whether to show you the
discuss tab or the traditional view.

I like the concept. Would want this to be part of workflow settings, so
that comment-tab could be enabled/disabled per content type.

I like the idea - big +1. This is a must for sites that have long
articles and/or many comments - viewing the node is enough bandwidth as
it is, without all the comments getting displayed as well. Also improves
usability, IMO.

Would also like to see pagination of the comments tab (I'm sure you've
thought of this already, Moshe). Something similar to A List Apart
[1]'s system, e.g. node/x/discuss/2 (page 2 of that node's comments).
Or, if the existing pager system demands it, node/x/discuss?page=2.

Let's discuss! Like do we want to have a reply form on the node display
even if the comments are on the discuss page?
