    Mike Pelletier just checked in a new "Discussable" mixin on Thursday.
Here's his note:

    Discussable allows you to attach a discussion to any piece of portal
content, which I think is way cool.

    I've been too busy with other things lately to spend a bunch of time
with PTK. Based on what I've read, post-PTK KMNN will either not exist
(because all the features I want are incorporated into other PTK elements),
or KMNN will be a simple piece of PortalContent that just has a few fields
in addition to the fields that News Item has. Actually, it's quite possible
that the only thing missing from News Item would be the notion of
"importance" to determine ordering of the items.

    Since you should be able to make News Items Discussable, that should
provide a Squishdot-like effect, but there may be other aspects of Squishdot
that I'm not aware of.
