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
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),

http://drupal.org/node/147000 ("unify module_rebuild_cache() and
http://drupal.org/node/152926 ("Introduce hook_info_alter()")

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:
