I get 404's when I click on them (there's a comments folder being appended 
to the path) but I could hack the URL to get at the proper comment, so they 
do work if the URL was correct.

On metafilter, I used to have "permalink" href'd in the footer of every 
comment, but later on I streamlined the interface, by stashing the href 
around the time something was posted.

For evolt's interface, I'd suggest just replacing the "#" link with maybe 
"link to this" to make it obvious, to help people along with getting used 
to seeing it and using it to reply to specific comments.
