Option to load comments asynchronously, for speed
|Reported by:||markjaquith||Owned by:||filosofo|
This comes as a suggestion from Google, who wants to help publishing platforms deliver content faster.
This also allows caching plugins to avoid flushing the cache for that page when a new comment is approved. They'd only have to monitor for post content changes. This means more cache hits, which translates into a faster average page load.
This solution would need to handle comment permalink requests, and scroll to that comment once the comments were loaded. We'd also have to delay comment-related JS (like threading support) until the comments were loaded.
Is this core? Can we do it without requiring explicit theme support?
