Not really, the data handling of draft posts is pretty similar, which was
why I mentioned it.

This is going off track now slightly ;) The way it works isn't far removed
from using more tags, there is an automatic pagination mode, but the
resulting content is published as nested pages (book >> chapter >> page).
Other ways were considered and then rejected mainly from an seo point of
view, but also ease of inplementation and editing of content.

Wordpress is going to work well for this application, once a book is
imported, with the automatic pagination (and other automatic includes), each
page can then be edited individually, or reprocessed as a multipage tagged

But back on track.

If someone was to make a post split over 50 pages using more tags, how would
the autosave cope with it?
