Comment (by efegue):

 Replying to [comment:28 valendesigns]:
 > The latest patch adds two new functions and filters that we can use to
 get & set the default comment and ping status on a per `post_type` basis.
 It also includes four unit tests, two of which would fail before the patch
 is applied as page & cpt do not support a `closed` default value when left
 empty in `wp_insert_post` or when the `post_type` does not support
 comments or trackbacks.
 > With this patch we can explicitly set the defaults on custom post types
 with a filter and still allow support for comments and trackbacks on those
 post types without having them set to `open` by default. Something I've
 personally been wanting for a while.
 > Whomever is still interested in seeing this move forward, please test
 and let me know your thoughts ASAP.

 I'm going to test this later today, but how is this different from
 disabling comments from the page? You'll need a developer to turn it back
 anyway or am I wrong?
