[wp-hackers] WordPress 2.0.3 Tuneup Plugin

Mdawaffe and I found three rather annoying bugs in WP 2.0.3 after  

- Comment edit form isn't nonced properly, so you get "Are you sure?"  
dialog [1]
- "Are you sure?" dialog leaves extra slashes in the forwarded  
content [2]
- After editing comments, you aren't forwarded to the correct  
location [3]

In order to hold people over until the next 2.0.x release (if there  
even is one), I wrote a plugin that fixes these issues.


Basically, it implements the fixes that Mdawaffe, Ryan and I worked  
on, but in a plugin, without modifying any core files (note to  
Mdawaffe: it even makes the nonce match update-comment_$comment_ID  
like in your patch).

This plugin is hardcoded to only work with WP version 2.0.3, so when  
you upgrade to the next version, it'll become non-functional.  Let me  
know if you have any feedback.  If any more annoying bugs like this  
are found in 2.0.3 that can be fixed from a plugin, I might consider  
updating it.

If you get a lot of flak about these bugs, you might consider  
pointing people to this plugin via the forums or the development blog.
