I don't know if this is such a good idea, because there's a delete
button at every comment which was written by the current user. There's
usually a reason why a user deletes his comments (fixing some typos/no
edit function in AUR, comment/bug report is invalid, etc.). And there's
pretty much nonsense in the comments which would better be deleted
anyway ("Version XY is out.", OT, etc.). So such comments shouldn't be
kept, neither in AUR nor in a separate archive.
