I've heard a couple of people already drop the name of
disqus. Disqus should be fairly easy to include, as it
merely needs some JS - Just like the Syntax Highlighting
now does. It would offer a fairly unobtrusive way to
introduce comments. I've already talked to the disqus
folks (via twitter) about one of the most important
aspects: Comments are stored and retrieved from their
infra. That means we're not putting a burden on ours.

But who do they belong to?!/disqus/status/152560950174679040

They'd belong to "us", so that's a thing less to worry
about. I'd say a big +1 from me for experimenting with

Please remember that there's an option to moderate
comments. I'd send new comments to docs@ for review/approval.
I don't know the exact workings of this, but if it's a
link to approve that would be not so good. With docs@
being a public ML and all..
