[wp-hackers] Working $allowed_keys

In classes.php, you have around lines 540-580:

$orderby = apply_filters('posts_orderby', $orderby); 

$request = " SELECT $distinct * FROM $wpdb->posts $join WHERE 1=1".$where."
ORDER BY " . $orderby . " $limits";

$this->posts = $wpdb->get_results($request);

So posts_orderby is likely an option for you. I recall I suggested at one
point that there should be a last minute filter like:

$request = apply_filters('posts_request', $request); 

I still think it would be useful. And if all else fails, a little later you

$this->posts = apply_filters('the_posts', $this->posts);

Which allows to completely trash and redo the query.

Hope this helps,
