( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Update: removed the actual quoting of the what bassplayer said about what g0n said, because it was far too silly.

This idea could very quickly get out of controll, particularly for people who may end up with the whole thread in <blockquote> tags in each of their posts in an attempt to make it clear what exactly it was that they're commenting on.

...ofcourse, I'm fairly sure that nobody will take it beyond one level of quoting, unless they're being deliberately silly. (not that I'd know anything about that)

Another option would be to track revisions of posts... and stash a rcs file in the database, and allow people to browse the patches to the node (and have the replies patch up/down to match the time).Even though the infrastructure would kill this, I thought I'd mention it here anyway.

but then again, a commit message on a forum post may be just a tad over the top...

Revision Controll is a serious thing to play with, and you really have to do all, or nothing...
