Put it into the core codebase. 

This brings up an interesting question.  I know some CMS's that target 
'real' online magazines have to be approved by an editor once submitted by 
the author.  There is also the ability to re-publish articles without 
losing historical data (e.g. the original date posted) and then there are 
tings like retractions.

This is thinking way ahead of where GL2 is but do we want to support some 
of these notions?  Are there other notions out there I'm missing?

Tony Bibbs          "I guess you have to remember that those who don't
tony at tonybibbs.com  hunt or fish often see those of us who do as      
                    harmlessly strange and sort of amusing. When you  
                    think about it, that might be a fair assessment."
