Two comments to this answer would, I think, be nice to incorporate into the answer proper. Is there a way to do this wholesale, or do I effectively need to re-create each of the commenter's references from scratch?
I don't mind that tiny bit of work. It just seems that a way to absorb the comment in would nicely (a) preserve a bit of a byline for the original comment author and then (b) remove the comment from their section, so it's not redundant. If there's a way to do that, I'd like to use it.
