i'm glad folks agree this is worth while, but the point of my email  
wasn't just to solicit +1s and praise... ;)

a) does anyone actually have time to work on this? ("talk is silver,  
code is gold").
b) does anyone have money to hire someone to work on this?
c) should we suffer without this for 1/2 a year and propose it as a  
2007 Summer of Code project?
d) any other bright ideas on how to actually get it done?

i'm way more interested in having the profile than hearing everyone  
say how much they like my idea (though a little positive feedback is  
nice for a change). ;)  so, if this thread is going to be valuable  
for the community, it should quickly move towards "who/how/when" for  
an implementation...


p.s. i should mention that the "fill up with malicious XSS content"  
aspect was inspired by something Heine (and perhaps Killes) were  
talking about once that really struck me as a grand idea.  however,  
they were talking about a DB dump to use for testing, whereas i like  
the idea of just autogenerating the malicious content via the install  
profile, so you can always test the latest DB schema, instead of  
being stuck with something fixed.
