 This makes it possible to filter the result of the comments_open and
 pings_open post status flags.  It also changes wp-comments-post.php and
 wp-trackback.php to call those functions rather than checking
 $post->comment_status and $post->ping_status directly.  This makes it
 possible for plugins to override and disable comment posting.

 Unfortunately many (most?) themes check those flags directly rather than
 calling comments_open() and pings_open(), so they might incorrectly
 display a comment form when comments are in fact disabled.
