Pony: Can the popular comments RSS feed include the title of the threads to which those comments were posted?

Currently, entries in the popular comments RSS feed appear as follows:
By PosterName in MeFi
by PosterName
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.
Could we include the thread title? It would give some extra context for people who read the comments directly in their RSS reader...
By PosterName in "SLYT lolcat PoliticsFilter Blue" [MeFi]
by PosterName
Yada yada yada yada yada yada yada.
Only counterargument I can see (other than it being yet another feature to implement) is that a lot of people put jokes in the title. But even then, you could recognize threads you're familiar with so you don't have to click through to the actual comment if you already have the context.

Oh, that's a good idea. +1 from me.

Whoa. I'm glad I somehow missed your thread when I tried to search for previous coverage of this topic, or I wouldn't have made the new one.

Good idea, jpdoane!
