For those who wish to help...

a) Please test update_status 5.x-2.0-beta:

b) Please test the 2 patches I have in the queue:
http://drupal.org/node/153502 (make it E_ALL compliant, for both 5.x  
and 6.x)
http://drupal.org/node/153503 (porting to the 6.x API)

c) After those land, I'll be working on making it a patch against  
system.module, instead of a stand-alone module (at Dries's request),  
but the issues in (b) are a first step.

d) 2 other D6 issues are related to moving update_status into core:
http://drupal.org/node/147000 ("unify module_rebuild_cache() and  
http://drupal.org/node/152926 ("Introduce hook_info_alter()")

If someone wanted to work on patches for either/both of those, I'd be

Eaton and I spoke about this at length last week.  We decided the  
next step for both node rendering and killing the evil $node  
namespace bugs I was ranting about earlier is to convert $node from  
an object into a #FAPI-style array.  This is a huge undertaking, but  
will solve a *bunch* of issues and open up tons of new  
possibilities.  I've been so busy with update_status that I haven't  
had a chance to work on the initial patch for this.  If anyone else  
wants to get the ball rolling, that'd be great:
