[wp-hackers] Using a custom post_type in the wp_posts table

I'm writing a plugin for managing photo albums. Right now, the plugin  
creates a table for the photos, but I was wondering, what would  
happen if I stored the posts in the wp-posts table? I'd set the  
post_type to something like 'photo'. would it mess things up in  
future versions of WordPress?
The main benefit of doing this would be the ability to use the  
wordpress comments system for the photos.
Any input from people who understand the WordPress core would be  
really helpful.
