People accidentally hit discard and then have no way to recover their comment.

Some ideas:
1. Provide a temporary undo UI (gmail-style).
2. Leave a permanent placeholder on that line.
3. Have your discarded comment magically reappear if you try to add a comment back to that line.

2 and 3 are not mutually exclusive.

I vote for "undo"
