>> # Public option for user messaging
>> Add a column to messages, a boolean for public or private. Private is default. Create message view includes checkbox. Then modify user/*/inbox to allow anyone to view, and filter entries there with

>replies to public messages should be private by default
Replies are full messages in their own right, so private/public would work the same.
>> # Changeset comments
>> This would require a new Model I think, which would look much messaging. Rather than user-user, user-changeset. Add a controller action to comment, and modify the changeset view to add a comment box, and list of messages.

Would need to search through the messages for changeset urls. Could be an inefficient query at display time. Searching when the message is created, and storing in the db, would still require a new Model, and I reckon it's cleaner to keep changeset comments and user messaging separate.

There's no concept of threading in messages currently. Would need to add a new column to messages.
