I can't really do a contrast with other blogging setups, as I'm
not totally familiar with them.  I can say the following:

  - Blog features will be optional (and disabled by default, but
    easily enabled with something like $EnableBlog).

  - There will be some mechanism to easily add comments to pages.

  - The main approach that blogging will use is described in
    http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.wiki.pmwiki.user/20510 ,
    albeit updated to take advantage of other features that have
    been introduced into PmWiki since that time (primarily
    pagelist templates and {$:var} page content variables).

Well, there are many ways of managing blogs and comments; PmWiki 
will simply add its own "preferred" form.  Other recipes and
mechanisms should continue to work.
