Yeah, g.d.o already has voting on comments. With some new (optional)
sorting of comments and theming we could show "OP voted +1 on this" or
even add some flag integration to let the OP choose a "right" answer.

To be clear: I think stackexchange sites are great and we can use and
promote them as well, but that doesn't mean we should let our own
tools languish.

For anyone who missed it: On the code sprint day in Chicago we'll have
a sprint for Groups.Drupal.org. Josh Koenig, me, others, fun!
