 I couldn't find any decent way of avoiding the "ERROR: please type a
 comment" message to appear if an empty comment is submitted. I was hoping
 to hook in somewhere and perform some custom action if an empty comment is
 encountered. The attached patch simply provides an action
 "require_valid_comment" that can be hooked into passing the post ID as the
 only argument. For my own use, I would redirect the user back to the post
 and tag on an error to be picked up in a custom comments template.
