The best part about comments is that they have no need to back to the 
author at all. The author can made edits to the article based on the 
comments and give people credit for their feedback, however comments can 
also be a good resource in themselves. Classic case is where there are 
many different ways to use a single tool ( eg, the greylisting page ) 
that people can just have things like other use cases, other deployment 
roles, alternative config mechanisms etc  without making the primary 
article too confusing and unmanageable.

yes a common auth module is something to work towards for sure. There 
has been some feedback re; website ver2 as well and I'll try and 
summarise that over the next few days - get another thread going for it.
