Well, the back log idea wouldn't be possible I'm sure... but.. at least 
to subscribe them to ALL post comments, or posts they had commented on 
before.. so any NEW ones.. they'd get notified for.. FYI: I'd love to 
see this in 2.6... rather than plugin. It would be awesome.. to have 
this feature in the WordPress code from the get... but, if not 
possible.. it's ok. .
