Without sounding harsh - it's not my job. We've always harped on the
point that the TUs and community was an autonomous entity. What we are
doing here is enabling that even more so. If the TUs and/or AUR guys
want to disable comments, that's their prerogative, but there's no way
in hell I'm going to add "oh and fiddle with some PHP while we're at
it" to the list of things to do here.
