Thank you Dries, this is the least painful path, specially the freeze is
practically upon us.

Perhaps when Moshe comes up with a good description, this would

crucial for modules to act on node events.

I also remember someone mentioning discrete CRUD functions
outside of nodeapi a while back (was it webchick?)
