Wordpress comment count with FB comment plugin

With respect to what was already posted regarding the FB comment plugin - in that the Wordpress comment count would not change when a comment is posted with with the FB plugin (as was discussed on this thread).

I noticed that on the TechCrunch website, which uses FB comment on with Wordpress, the comments counts do reflect the number of actual comments made on each of the post. Any explanation for this? And is this something that can be considered for future updates?

Just a question.
