What do you think, should "last updated" time record be updated when a new comment is added to question or answer?
If that field is updated, then most recently commented questions (or questions whose answers were rencently commented) will appear on the top in the default question listing. Is this a good thing?

What do you think of adding new "Sort by" value called "comments" which would, when clicked on, sort questions by most (or least on second click) recently posted comments in them? This shouldn't change current behavior of sorting by activity.
It could also be mixed with solution @sagarun proposed, which would then serve as a mechanism for admins to choose whether sort by activity or comments would be site default. Option can be added in user profile too to change this setting on individual basis.
