Patch for adding multiple comment_type support

+1 I have a couple of use cases this would be very helpful for, e.g. displaying a custom comment type in a loop with regular comments, without doing multiple comment queries and then merging the resulting data. This is particularly important because I have more comment types than I want to display, so displaying all the types would not work.
