As I said to Eaton on many occasions on IRC, I'd be really willing to
help on this. I came to the same conclusion that $node refactoring was a
prerequisite for a generic notion of fields for core. Unfortunately, I
find myself with limited amount of spare time these few days (some site
to drive live within the fortnight...). Do you think something is
achievable within the 10 days before D6 freeze ?
On a related note, and _if_ D6 has to go out without Eaton's much
awaited node rendering / nodes styles patches, I opened an issue to at
least try to get a D6 workaround for node 'search index' rendering.
Feedback welcome in http://drupal.org/node/152493
Last point : a few days ago I started some work on reviving killes'
"block cache for core" patch in http://drupal.org/node/80951, with the
intent of merging with jjeff's 'Block cache' contrib module (which works
just great but suffers from painful usability issues mainly due to its
being 'contrib'). This is semi-but-not-quite ready for public eye yet.
I've been told one of the biggest points would be getting Dries
acceptance :-), so I'd welcome even an informal 'go', or a hint that my
time could be more useful somewhere else.
