Maybe that will give you time to learn why we have the current approach
and why I'm slightly modifying that approach for performance.

Sorry for my snarky tone, but it comes off as quite rude to say, "Oh, I
guess we'll just replace your hard work with my ideas /next/ version,"
when you haven't provided anything more than some abstract wishes about
comments being nodes.

Why don't you just use Robert Douglass's module and see if it suits your
needs? I'm sure it's well-written.
