Yep. I just wasn't sure what to put into them. A table definition with a
dummy field?

I was wondering: Should it rather add more code and files that you can
remove when you don't need it? Or should it ask you lots of questions
(do you want autotag support? do you need search? etc.) and only add the
code that you requested?

Sounds like a good idea. I'm not up to speed on the search API changes
in 1.6, maybe Sami can fill us in here?

I'll have a look at the syndication API on occasion.

Oh, and don't forget to file feature requests (also for the Plugin
Toolkit) so we don't forget about it.
