I know my reply is late, but Bryar will do what you want.  With a
fairly simple combination of rsync and make I can create journal entries
either on my server or on my laptop and have them synchronise
themselves, and also pull copies of comments down from the server.

It lacks a few features - there's no anti-spam measures, which you will
*need*, and no email notification when people comment, for example, but
those are trivial to add in.  Now that I have the keys to the castle,
I'll upload support for them to the CPAN shortly.
