This is not a support question.
Wordpress is a nice application, but it also have a bunch of nice
functions, for instance autoop() and antispambot() and so on. These
functions could be used a bunch of places, not just in wordpress, but
they are pretty hard to come by.
Greg Beaver has recently done a lot of work on the PEAR installer, and
it now supports channels and other really neat features. The PEAR
installer would be an excellent fit to put some of WP's reusable
functions out for everyone to enjoy.
It would be neat to have the following commando available for the
$ pear channel-discover pear.wordpress.com
$ pear install wordpress/functions
And when there is an upgrade for the functions:
$pear upgrade wordpress/functions
Just an idea. Take care :D
