Hi Jamie--

I've run into a problem with Singular: it overwrites any selected post 
slug with the generated slug from the post title.

I'm looking at 3 possible solutions:

1. Check for $_POST['post_name'] which should still be around. (I think 
this is best)
2. Retrieve both post_name and post_title and compare them before 
overwriting - could be complicated.
3. Retrieve post_name and do some regex to see if the last digit is a 
number, yada-yada-yada.

I'm going to implement #1 as #2 and 3 seem like poor solutions to me. 
Perhaps the rest of you have better ideas?
