+1 for this.  I'd like to see some standardization of 'status'  
semantics throughout (anyone else get annoyed that '0' is published  
for contents and '1' is published for nodes and users?). I also like  
that this can be further extended to include additional STATUS values.

though? Or am I misreading your intention?

As noted later in the thread - we already *should* have WHERE  
status=1 clauses in most modules (those that don't already have bugs,  
imo)... so this would be a natural extention ... i.e. most modules  
would only ever list where status=STATUS_ACTIVE.
