    Thanks for clarifying.

    In prior comments, it sounded like this patch would hit core and 
provide default functionality that superseded or perhaps would conflict 
with such contributed modules as inline. As described above, it sounds 
like this will make life easier for such enhanced feature modules.

    If this patch and additional modules like inline can play happily 
together, I have no problem and go 1+.

    I have one current project and seven xmlrpc-related crisis upgrades 
(some client sites going back to 4.2!) that have consumed all available 
time at present. So I have not had the opportunity to speak from direct 

    I just know that I want inline graphic placement that works with the 
attachment feature and did not want to lose this.

    Thanks for the clarification,
