[wp-hackers] Hello Dolly's future

The new 1.6 design makes the default Hello Dolly plugin styling very off 
(overlapping with the sign out and profile links). Perhaps this is a good 
time to discuss whether Hello Dolly should continue or be replaced by a 
more....useful plugin.

I don't know if Matt is partial to it, but it just seems useless. As a 
plugin example for newbie plugin writers, it may be alright (due to its 
simplicity). But perhaps it could be replaced with something like the Docs 
Search (formerly Codex Search) plugin or the WP Up-to-date plugin. They are 
considerably more complex than Hello Dolly, but they're very useful. The 
styling would need to be tweaked so they don't conflict with the new stuff 
in the top-right (perhaps they could be bumped right below that). 

My vote is for the Docs Search plugin, because it gives users tons of WP 
information at their fingertips, and could reduce a lot of repetitive forum 
posts. Also because it's my plugin (and Owen's!)..heh
