What Karoly is saying is something I observed: every long thread recently
has alluded
to the "CCK in core" wish that many of us would like to see. An example is
the user
profile thread by Rowan, and the replies in it just today, and many others
before it.

Karoly is quoting past precedence on how long it takes things to mature and
make it
into core, and is of the opinion that cck in core will not be ready for D6.

Anyone willing to take up the challenge and prove him wrong?
Drupal development, customization and consulting.
