This comes up every month or three in this newsgroup and I think
I can summarize the comments of others by saying two things:

1) Thinking it's a good idea isn't enough if you want it: somebody
    has to implement it.  It's been suggested before, so at this
    point the next step is for someone who likes the idea enough
    to just do it.

2) Many people think that the noise created by lots of user
    comments would far outweigh the value of the good comments
    that might be hidden somewhere within.
