 I agree that it'd be nice to be able to configure the "newest" behavior:
 "most recently posted" vs "most recently active" or something like that.
 Unfortunately, this is technically impossible at the moment: the way our
 activity data is stored, there's no way to sort by "most recently active"
 without actually bumping the `date_recorded` value on the top-level
 activity item. We'd probably need to introduce a `date_updated` column or
 something like that. Do others think that this is feasible?

 > What about adding a filter for return $comments in that method? We will
 be able to alter that array and reverse the order, for example.

 Sure, a filter on the return value of this method seems OK to me. I don't
 think it solves what @Sweeny is asking for, but I can see it being useful
 for other purposes.
