Version 1.2 was based on the latest static pages code from cvs at the time.  
Version 1.3 which I have forwarded to Dirk also makes static pages fully 
privs aware.  Speaking of privs I have made static pages privs aware 
according to the geeklog standard.  This makes it so that edit privilage 
assumes view privilege.  This makes it impossible to make a static page 
viewable only by an anonymous user, e.g.  It is a small change to make it so 
that edit does not assume view.  I have also given that option to Dirk.  But 
this breaks the current model -- let Dirk know if you think the latter 
functionality should be included.

That would be possible but would require a reworking of the admin page and a 
strict naming convention like I made with the menu plugin.  I doubt that 
will make it into cvs this time around.  I am traveling right now but will 
look into it when I get back in town.
