I agree.  I hope we can simplify the CCK -- or at least make it more  
accessible -- when we move the remaining bits to core.  It took many  
iterations to get the current CCK stuff in core as simple as possible  
but I'm determined to do the same with what is left.

I said it before and I'll say it again: hackability matters a lot.   
Complexity is a disease.
