I say add something like the following:

The first one is the one we needed the most.  I figured adding a 
postSaveComment would complete the cycle, though, I can't think of an 
immediate use for it now.  I also added the two story-related methods as 
I don't think it would be a stretch to think someone may want those at 
some point.  Just a suggestion...we can simply add the one and worry 
about the rest as needed...I just figured we might try being a bit more 
proactive by adding a few more.

Agreed, I misunderstood that much.  With that, nothing else is really 
needed then.

Count the spellchecker out.  I've dusted it off and have a few fairly 
big bugs that will take some time...not worth holding off the .10 release.
