I concur.  People *like* interactive comments, it seems, and we'd not
accomplish much by taking them away except to piss off the users.

What we do need is a better process for improving the docs in response
to what gets posted as interactive comments.  I've tried in the past to
scan the interactive comments and incorporate what seemed worthwhile,
but it's a mighty tedious task.

We could try this for awhile and see if it works.
