As a side note, instead of using a singleton when activating the hook:
add_action('publish', array(&$singleton, 'function'));

You can do this:
add_action('publish', array(&$this, 'function'));

... as long as you call the add_action from within the class.  For  
some classes, there is no benefit, but with some other classes,  
people might want to start up a second instance, and this allows them  
to do so, because you haven't hardcoded the singleton object's name  
into the class.  Plus, it's just good coding. :-)
