Geo is just for posts, but it's the same sort of principle.

The trick is that there isn't a good place to store coordinates with 
each comment.  Geo uses the postmeta table to store the coordinates for 
each post.

You could store the coordinates in usermeta, one set per user, but then 
any user you wanted to have coordinate info for would need to be 
registered.  But it doesn't sound like that's what you want.

You could make a more severe hack and add a field or two to the comments 
table to hold the coordinates, which would let you store a coordinate 
for each comment.

Of course, you could wait some more for the plugin author to finish the 
new version, or bug him some more.
