I think this is an excellent example of the use of the is_* functions.
We have a new page [[Conditional Tags]], and this could be an example
at that page, with some minor mods.

I beleive there are plugins that show a count of the number of
comments,posts etc. and I think it should be possible to list the
categories the post belongs to in the sidebar for single-entry pages,
but your example is really neat, and we can point to a live website
that serves to show how the is_* functions work, if nothing else.

The other functions can go to the respective Template Tag pages, as
example of modifications. Like "If you want to do something similar to
this tag, but outside the loop, do this: "

Could you write up an example at the [[Conditional Tags]] page?
