I've just one thing to say so far. If the motion is passed and a similar 
is taken, it would be better to make this feature optional, either by 
giving an
option to switch it on/off via control panel or via a variable in the 
since there are quite a number of people(like me) who don't always use
1-2 computers to post to their WP blogs, but infact use many different 
like when on a trip(without a notebook) etc or something. So having a 
saved in a cookie on an alien machine isn't that wise IMHO.
