Putting BFA Recent Comments within a Page

I'm trying to create a Page, not a Post, to show lists of the most recent posts from several categories, and also a list of the most recent comments. I've got a plugin that lets you use short codes to show the posts from certain categories on a page, but it doesn't "do" comments.

I was thinking if I could somehow run the code behind the BFA Recent Comments widget as a short code, that would work. Any ideas?

Or another way to do it?

oh, your are going to love this. I just tried it out and it works. You can add a new widget area to a page!! It will only show up on that page. Have fun

OK, I'll bite. How? I pasted
Code:
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=recent_comments'); ?>
into a Page in HTML view. I visited the page in the browser. Then went to the Widgets admin. The widget area doesn't show up.

I just pasted your code in to a page, viewed the page, went to widgets and there is now a 'recent_comments' widget area.

Still not working for me. Hmmm. Would it matter that there is other short code on the page above the new widget area code?
