The delete user function should also delete that user's comments or attribute that users comments to the person specified. That way, deletion of accounts goes a lot smoother.

While posts are created by a user account, comments can be created without a user account. So I don't think this should be an outright delete. Either we add a checkbox to that screen, or assume that not deleting the comments is actually the best behavior, and if someone wanted to change that behavior, they could use the delete_user hook there.

I think there should be a checkbox addition to that screen. Also, if that doesn't work we could allow users to delete each of their comments on their own.
