I have noticed this morning that hook_nodeapi is no longer called by
$node as first argument as first setting, but only $type. I documented
this in the handbook, 'cos I have thought this is well thought out
decision which is executed through the core. But only node.module is
updated, comment and upload is broken and every node module out there.
I know we do not have backwards compatibility. I think it would be
better to introduce a new hook for this. But, as we are in feature
freeze, I doubt any of this shall happen. Instead, for now let's change
the behaviour back.

Resetting to patch, as Dries just commented this as 'slightly better'.

Slightly updated patch that now does both $node->type references in the
form_checkboxes call, and the change to the phpDOC.
