Personally, I'd like to see the template stuff go in first so it's  
great to see you guys focus on that first.

I also want us to look at chx's node type patch (see patch queue)  
which implements an extremely light version of the CCK / flexinode  
module.   It will help us get rid of the pseudo-duplicate-node- 
types.  If some people could help test and review that patch, that  
would be awesome.  I already gave it a couple reviews, and things are  
almost usable, it seems. :-)
