[geeklog-devel] Deleting comments

With Dirk's blessing to break the comment plugin API.  Here is my idea thus far:

CMT_deleteComment and CMT_saveComment will be limited to exactly that
functionality.  They will act no different for articles or polls as
they would for any other variable.  They will return 0 for success or
>0 for failure (and log the failure to the errorLog).  I plan on doing
something similar for CMT_commentForm.

So there will now be plugin functions for saving and deleting comments
which should simply call these functions when they are ready (and
determine that the correct permissions hold, etc).

I'll continue with this approach if it sounds good to everyone.  I'd
especially like some feedback from anyone currently using the plugin
comment functionality.
