This is very interesting. I'm currently using the userreview module instead 
of fivestar, even though I'd prefer a star rating, because it lets you 
comment and rate at the same time. I'm interested in trying your approach, 
but I'm concerned about totally replacing the comment module. Have you run 
into any problems with things that use comments such as forums? Especially 
when using flatforum?

I'm getting totally off topic for the dev list... If you prefer, I could 
file an issue with my question. Or you can email me directly if you don't 
mind doing that. This sounds really cool, but I'm nervous about replacing a 
core module like that.
