I am a bit of a sceptic to these two. Granted, the comment plugin adds
some page actions, but the implementation of it is a bit of an
abdomination in my opinion. What I really would like is support for
external applications getting embedded at certain nodes of the wiki
tho, for instance giving control to Angerwhale or mojolicious at /blog
for instance, but still wrapped in the general design of the wiki. I'm
not sure how feasible this is though.

This seems somewhat similar to what I am talking about above.
