 Right now the comments feeds are throttled by the same limiting number the
 user chooses for "posts feeds" (posts_per_rss).

 It makes sense that a blog owner would want to set a higher threshold for
 comments than for posts, for these reasons:

 - Readers who subscribe to comment feeds are fewer in number and less
 likely to burden the system in aggregate.

 - Comments are typically shorter per entry than posts are.

 - Comments are liable to expand much more quickly than posts, making it
 difficult for readers to "keep up" without wrapping past the limit.

 For instance in my blog I limit post feeds to 10 entries, but I'd like to
 offer a much larger limit for comments subscribers.

 Establishing a "comments_per_feed" variable that is used in place of the
 "posts_per_rss" would accomplish this.
