[wp-hackers] Replacing TinyMCE with Xinha

Include as a plugin, like Akismet. It will still be there to activate if you 
need it. I'm not arguing against including WYSIWYG with WP. I guess when I 
think of core code, I think of bare essentials, especially when the system 
already employs a plugin framework. WYSIWYG is non-essential code, therefore 
should be a plugin. The plugin is a click away from activation. Or ship WP 
with tinyMCE (or Xinha) plugin pre-activated.
