Fantastic. Thanks for this, Gordon.

Who is in control of FCKEditor module? It should also be removed from
Drupal CVS, if it hasn't already.

Also, please continue the discussion in the forum thread

editing in general. I've suggested organizing development resources so
that we can move forward faster.
