You can customize your li output by registering a callback.  The
callback should not output the closing li tag, the walker will do
that.  With a callback you don't have to do your own loop and you
don't have to handle threading yourself.  Also, I'm think of adding a
separate_comments boolean to comments_template() so themes can
indicate they want comments separated with counts for each type.

wp_list_comments(array('callback' => 'custom_comment'));

function custom_comment($comment, $args, $depth) {
       $GLOBALS['comment'] = $comment;
<li <?php comment_class(); ?> id="comment-<?php comment_ID( ); ?>">
        <?php echo get_avatar( $comment->user_id,
$comment->comment_author_email, 32 ); ?>
                <?php comment_author_link( ); ?>
                <span class="meta"><?php comment_time( ); ?> on <?php
comment_date( ); ?> | <a href="#comment-<?php comment_ID( ); ?>">#</a>
| <?php echo comment_reply_link(array('depth' => $depth, 'max_depth'
=> $args['depth'])) ?><?php edit_comment_link( __( 'e' ),
'&nbsp;|&nbsp;',''); ?></span>
        <?php comment_text( ); ?>
