 There was some discussion about comment meta (I think in a wp-meetup), but
 I can't find a ticket, so here it is.

 There should be a commentmeta table that stores metadata associated with
 specific comments.  This allows plugins to store data associated with
 specific comments, instead of trying to shoehorn it into postmeta somehow.
 Some possible uses:

  * Geo data
  * Additional fields (like a quiz, or the commenter's age, etc)
  * A link to the commenter's CoComment feed
  * The name of the commenter's site
  * Comment subscription status (my plugin alters the comment table...
 something I wish could have been avoided)
  * Antispam plugin data related to the comment
