Make Recent Comments tool honor "view comments in your style" option

Make Recent Comments tool honor "view comments in your style" option

Short, concise description of the idea
The recent_comments.bml tool does not currently honor the "view comments in your style" option, it should be modified to honor it.

Full description of the idea
When you click a link to a post or thread from the recent_comments page, in the "comments you've posted" section, you see the journal-style for the comments page, even if you have "view comments in your style" selected in your settings. This should be changed so that the proper "&style=mine" parameter is added to the URLs, just as it is for the Friends page when "view comments in your style" is selected.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allows comments in a thread you've posted in to be viewed in your comments page style instead of the other journal's style.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • For those who don't want the option it should not cause any problems, since if "view comments in your style" is off, the "&style=mine" addition shouldn't be added.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I believe recent_comments.bml merely needs to be modified to have the same code in the friends-page viewer that checks for the "view comments in your style" option and appends "&style=mine" to the URL, when generating the list of posts that have been commented upon.
