that's basically what i had in mind.  and yeah, changing all the call  
sites (and therefore, breaking most patches in the queue) is the  
problem. ;)

i had a scheme for avoiding the majority of the call-site changes  
(and therefore, patch brokenness) by letting the stuff from {node}  
and {node_revisions} continue to live at the root of $node (so  
everywhere that does $node->nid, $node->title, etc wouldn't have to  
change).  however, that's broken by {node}.comment vs.  
comment.module's data. :(

anyway, please see http://drupal.org/node/148420 for more details on  
this, and for the continuation of this thread.

now that we've got another 4 weeks before freeze, there's actually a  
chance in hell of getting this done for D6... ;)
