Right that the pmdev staff should not be saddled with it. But, it seemed that there were a few people who would enjoy it. Also, it would be very helpful for new SoPW to be able to understand some of the "quickie code" laid down by the Monks.
That's why I'm offering to do the code -- I couldn't promise that it would be done quickly, but it would be a great exercise. As long as there isn't significant opposition to the idea, and as long as users could turn it off in their preferences, it is something I'd like to do. That makes this particular discussion slightly different than previous nodes.
My primary questions, then, are:
- Are there any objections to implementing this?
- Would the pmdev team roll the patches in, assuming they were done well, etc, etc.?
- If it were done, how should it be done? IOW, what would make the monestary comfortable with the idea?

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
