in thread Including number of replies in Newest Nodes

OK. i think it's basically useless to only count top-level replies, since the purpose of showing the count is presumably to be able to compare it with an earlier value and thus notice additions to a thread easier without having to correlate and count the appropriate comments in the Notes/Replies.

p.s. i need more -- votes on stupid drivel like this.

[erix]: hippo I think the 26 downvotes sick
[erix]: eh, 29 downvotes
[erix]: but I guess there's no stopping the herd
[1nickt]: Thank you haukex and hippo. I'm thinking of using IPC::System:: Simple::capture instead. But will go reread Hauke's treatise first :-)
[1nickt]: herveus is so weird. Love his reply in that SQLite thread! Much more effective warning system to have diverse monks debunk on technical merits...
[haukex]: IPC::System:: Simple does all the $? handling for you, and does it well
[erix]: weird problem btw (that SQLite question) - I asked astroboy to let us know if he finds the cause
[hippo]: The syntax is warning enough to me.
