[geeklog-devel] 1.3.10 to do list

For the record, instances of $_REQUEST in files:

system/classes/search.class.php:1   <--- I think this is just a comment

I guess I can take care of comment.php if you really think this is
necessary.  Honestly I don't think this is that big a deal.  Anyone
using PHP < 4.1.0 is open to so many security holes we're probably
doing them a favor...

$_REQUEST makes things, much, much easier (at least in comment.php)
because forms submitting input to the script have a mix of GET and
POST variables (and often some variables are used both ways depending
on from where they are called).
