> didn't decide yet if it should become ... another CMS
How many dozen CMSs are out there now?
Have you checked more than just WP -- to see if some other one has the features you want?

NIH* -- It is a lot of fun, but it is a lot of wasted effort. At least you are considering starting with an existing product.

A hierarchy is pretty simple to implement -- just a parent_id that self-joins to the same table. Be sure to have separate tables for the "thread as a whole" versus "the blog entries". (One product tried to put those in the same table, with 'bad' results.)

*NIH is the TLA for "Not Invented Here", the thing the lures programmers into doing more work than they ought to. (And enjoying it.)
