Story IDs are sequential so it would take a real kludge to map each to a variable number of thread IDs, as the same board ID/thread ID pair is also used in the other forums.
Some stories/topics on the main page end up having multiple stories within. I think it would be nice to be able to have a comments section for individual items instead of having to mix discussions in the main topic. Maybe have a comments link next to each story link? Not sure how doable this is, just tossing it out there!
