Well I was betting on jQuery because of the WP team's choice to use it in
the admin panel (and it's my favourite :P), and I agree Aaron that it can
probably be achieved with much less JS than loading a whole framework.
However, bear in mind the size of the packed jQuery is only 30KB and many
many blogs I have been on already use jQuery for something - it's readily
loaded even for simple effects like Lightboxes.

Perhaps having a checkbox in the admin panel under the new comments section?
