Yeah it is a nice idea, only i dont think people are gonna spend time
deleting comments.

Usually when a somewhat popular package gets uploaded theres a lot of
discussion about
how to do this & that etc. Then when the script reaches a fairly satisfying
point of decency
discussion stops. & then you mostly see comments like "1.2 is out" or
complete build scripts
or patches posted etc.
See for example http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24266

IMO its better that the first, and more important part of the discussion to
be done on the mailing
list, this way people who dont use the package can help.
People can also get familiar with the package that way.
Then email the maintainer directly.
