Maybe a warning dialog or a status bar update would be positive to
notify the user if a comment is orphaned in someway. I know though this
would require some intelligent coding.

Well, if we had code that could determine that a comment had been
orphaned, the same code should be able to move the comment to an
appropriate place automatically. I just don't think it's doable though.
Ah, btw, for those of you not on the Sodipodi list, I've been talking
with Lauris about this and he raised some good points that have sort of
changed my mind... so maybe a basic comment-preserving implementation is
worth it after all, even though we can't automatically deal with
Since we have the XML editor, it's not like the comments are getting
lost totally behind the user's back -- and an XML file with a lot of
comments is probably either going to be only edited trivially, or partly
edited in the XML editor anyway (in which case the user can see and fix
