[patch] RSS importer doesn't import Wordpress.com comments

The RSS importer included with WordPress doesn't import <wp:comment>s, as exported by Wordpress.com. I've patched the importer to handle those comments, and refactored it a tiny bit as well.

Note that the importer still uses regular expressions to parse the XML - this is non-optimal as it may break with nested tags (or an RSS feed that uses different XML namespaces). I didn't fix that as I wasn't sure what the preferred namespace-aware XML parser for PHP is these days.

Why would people use the RSS importer instead of the WP XML importer, and why should e duplicate code between them?

Probably because the WP XML importer is not supported (except by my plugin) in 2.0.3?

D'oh! Should have checked the development version before I wrote this. Aah well.
