Hi [~rafaharo], any interest in extending the connector in this way?

>             Project: ManifoldCF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Confluence connector

> The confluence crawler skips comments.  For a site which uses this as a recorded collaboration
platform the comments often are where the text is which needs to be searched.
> I've found that by adding `children.comment.body.view` to the `expand` querystring field
you can get one level of comments.  Subsequent levels can be added to the response by adding
{{children.comment.children.comment.body.view}} for the second level.  3rd, 4th, 5th levels
of comments can be added with the 5th being {{children.comment.children.comment.children.comment.children.comment.children.comment.body.view}}
> I realize that this doesn't get 100% of the comments but 5 levels of nesting seems like
a reasonable chunk to capture. 
> An alternative would be to crawl comments separately and set the page-type to 'comment'
rather than 'page'.  While this also has value I think fetching the comments along with the
page requests offers the biggest bang for the buck.
