I think Calvin was advocating the general concept, not the specific
implementation.  I'm sure we can find an open-source, locally-hostable
comment system that requires only PHP, HTML4/XHTML1, and
CSS<=2 (and if we can't, I'm sure I'm not the only one here
capable of creating such a system if it turns out to be both useful
and necessary).
