I'm surprised that there are many here who aren't using teasers. I
think it's much more likely for users to use teasers and not
developers, because they wouldn't encounter the benefits of replacing
the teaser with a CCK field. The main problem I encounter with teasers
is the name. "Summary" or "Introduction" is how I explain it to my
users, and when they understand that, they're quite happy to use it in
its intended manner. JS-splitter and all!

It'd have to catch the case where the teaser is a subset, but the
default position of <!--break--> has moved as well. I'd support only
creating a teaser field on site upgrades, and having just a body field
on new installs.
