I've just started using A::G and that's the one really big thing I find
lacking in this program, so I've started to look at adding it.  I saw on the
mailing list archive that someone else had already looked at it, and done much
of the code, but it never got included in the release version of A::G.  So I
was planning on working off of that.  So you could check the mailing list
archive and see what the other guy wrote (can't remember his name).

The way I considered solving this would be to write a .comment/.rotate file in
the cache directories when done from the web, and have A::G use the newer of
the 2 files when is displays the image.  The only issue I can really see is if
the cache directory gets deleted to clean it up or something the users may
lose their comment data, which makes that sound like a bad idea.
