PHP-Nuke incorporates that functionality, so it can be imported from there.
PHP-Nuke already inherits a lot of functionality from phpBB, which 
probably can
fit into WordPress to create a community among site subscribers (important in
blogs/sites that focus on a niche).

Threading of comments is also a key feature, which will contribute enormously,
especially to the WordPress support forums. Have you tried keeping track of
long support threads? It is too linear and could definitely benefit from this
