I'm definitely familiar with it, but... I was referring to functions to add the *standard* meta boxes to a custom Edit page, not custom ones.
Looking at it again, it appears that you could use it to add the standard boxes to a custom page, simply by hooking the standard functions instead of custom ones. Hmmm....
Actually, the implications of that are huge. In a good way. :-) Thanks for pointing out the obvious to me.
