Why not just hook into the shutdown function? That option operates after
sending all client data, would have no impact on either user, and
wouldn't require spawning another thread/database connection/etc.
In fact, you can use the wordpress API to hook into the "shutdown" hook
which will do the same thing.
Regardless -- didn't this all get moved to the admin footer? Launched in
an iframe? I was under the impression that 2.0 put a "toping" postmeta
on a post at post time, and then the admin footer would list all the
"toping" posts and deal with them.
