[development] Change in status

Not sure what Moshe intended, but I added a "value" form element to all
nodes called "_currentstatus" storing the $node->status.  Then, I compare it
to the nodeapi $node->status on update/submit, and 0 changing to 1
represents a new publish.

Yes, it's quite "hack-ish" but it works well enough.  An argument could be
made to store this state change information in the default node, but I guess
that'll happen when enough people want it.
