Well, the feedback functionality itself is not hugely non-straightforward (?) - the difficult bit is it means I have to get in to the sticky world of authentication. I don't want to create a free-for-all. I'd really like to be able to tie comments to osm accounts and that requires quite a bit of oauth work along with tying it into django's session/auth system. It's something I've wanted to do for a while with musical chairs but I've never really convinced myself it's worth investing the time.
