Pagelists already have the ability to sort pages by ctime; all that
is needed is to write the appropriate formatting output (either as
a pagelist template or a custom format routine).

PmWiki's view of "comments" will be that it's simply a restricted
form of editing -- i.e., a way to add content to a page without
editing the entire page. So, the hooks for "add content" will be
in the core, and any sophisticated features for commenting will be
separate modules or recipes.

In my view, "talk/discussion" and "comments" are really the same code--
the only difference is the context in which they are displayed.
