Yes, but I was not planning to actually put $node->body into the new
array. A lot of existing code, both core and contrib, relies on $node->body

Actually, I'd planned to do it the other way, based on the assumption that
existing contributed modules tend, as a rule, to append rather than
prepending. If there's a concensus that it should be as you describe, though,
this is a negotiable point.

I think I agree with this, but need to take a more detailed look at the code.
The UI for designing things is beyond the scope of what I have time to do right
now. I was just planning to provide the framework for node.module to handle
the extra content.
