Here's how I've done it - still in theme/__init__.py , but using
'Comment' rather than 'Discuss' - to place the link to the right of the
'More Actions' menu:

In editbarItems, replace the line


and add this function

    def commentLink(self, page):
        request = self.request
        _ = self.request.getText
        link = wikiutil.link_tag
        quotedname = wikiutil.quoteWikinameURL(page.page_name)
        if not quotedname.endswith('/Comment'):
            comment_page = Page(request, quotedname + '/Comment')
            if comment_page.isStandardPage(False):
                text = _('Comment', formatted=False)
                return comment_page.link_to(comment_page.request, text)
                text = _('Comment', formatted=False)
                return comment_page.link_to(comment_page.request, text, attrs='class="nocomment"')
