I thought this was neat enough to merit passing along.

The team at Freedom to Tinker have put together a site (
http://www.fedthread.org/) that allows searching and threaded comments for
all US Govt regulations published in the Federal Register, going back to
2000.  Any paragraph can be the start of a new conversation thread.  You can
have RSS or email feeds based on custom searches.  It was built on a LAMP
stack using Django, jQuery, and critically, the Federal Register XML feed
from the Government Printing Office.

The really impressive part: there were only ten days between the initial
concept for the site and the launch.
