This patch introduces the concept of unpublished nodes' administrator.
This admin can do anything with unpublished nodes, but changing
Known problem: If you have some node types where the default workflow
is to publish, for example storiy, and for some others you want to
employ unpublished node administrators (UNAs). If you unpublish a story
and a UNA changes anything in that, it will pop back to published state
and the poor UNA will be unable to unpublish it. Possible workaround:
UNAs never can publish anything, even if default workflow says
"publish". Disadvantage: UNA will need to keep two accounts, one normal
user who can publish stories and an UNA account.
