[wp-hackers] Proposed change in function the_ID()

This is a proposed change to the function the_ID() in the file 
wp-includes/template-functions-post.php, which I needed for a couple of 
templates I created.
It simply allows the ID to be returned instead of printed. I adopted the 
coding style from wp_title(), which already has this option.

The change is simply this:

function the_ID($display = true) {
    global $id;
    if ($display) {
        echo $id;
    } elseif (!$display) {
        return $id;

Best regards,
