Reordering fields for comments.php in WordPress

As best as I can tell, there is no way, in the PHP, to reorder all of the fields for comments.php in WordPress. You can reorder some, but you can’t move the textarea above the three primary fields. I ultimately achieved this by “cheating” – a wee bit of jquery. But I would have preferred to do this 1) in the PHP and 2) without modifying core. And, like I said, I see no way to do that. Am I wrong? I’ll post back if I ever find that I am. (And no, I did not modify core. I understand the consequences.)
