It's a hack. I've done something similar by offering a display option 
for "999 comments" over at Gamegrene.com. In my phptemplate, I use:

// changes/shortens the names of the available options, but
// also adds a '999' option to the number of available comments.
// this allows people to see all comments on one page, no flips.
function phptemplate_comment_per_page_form($comments_per_page) { 
$options = '';
   $comment_per_page = _comment_per_page(); $comment_per_page[] = '999';
   foreach ($comment_per_page as $i) { $options .= " <option 
value=\"$i\"". ($comments_per_page == $i ? ' selected="selected"' : '') 
.'>'. t('%a comments/page', array('%a' => $i)) .'</option>'; }
   return "<select name=\"comments_per_page\">$options</select>\n";
