Our discussion has raised a lot of exciting potentials, thanks to all who 
contributed. The best way to move forward, I'm suspecting, is to start with 
a minimal implementation of what everyone seems to agree on: a consistent 
set of common handlers for all object types (nodes, users, etc.) and a 
single hook that acts on them all. From there we'll be much better 
positioned to consider further, more radical steps if they're needed.

Please, tear it apart!
