I've been thinking about the same: Scripting News writes:
When I post a comment on weblog, as I do more often these days, I'd like to be notified when someone else posts to the same item, or perhaps the same weblog. It would automate something I do manually now.I'd think this would be a nice and easy(?) thing to implement in Movable Type, which already has functionality for email subscriptions overall and a nice way of handling comments. Imagine adding a little checkbox below the comment entry field allowing you to get future comments on this posting only sent to you? I'd love it, as I often don't revisit posts I've commented on... (via a klog apart).
0xDECAFBAD solves it in a different way; providing RSS feeds with comments per post. The challenge being, of course, that most RSS newsreaders in their current state aren't prepared for this and will "drown" in the nuber of feeds very quickly...
