I looked around the various "latest comments" hacks available for WordPress, and found them all a little sparse for my liking.
I have written a more decorative one, and it can be seen at http://testbed.amoral.org (despite the URL it's really nothing dodgy; it's just my dad's political commentary blog.)
Now, I would love to contribute this back to the WordPress community, if they want it!
(1) Is it a useful enough hack that anyone is interested?
(2) If it is, how do I hand the code over?
