[wp-hackers] updating widgets for multiple sidebars

I'm sorry if what I wrote was confusing. I am referring to the widgets  
that have NOT been enabled to work in multiple sidebars as of this  

For example, in the default widgets provided with the current tagged  
2.6 release, links, meta, recent comments ... are single sidebar  
widgets and are not multiple sidebar enabled.

I was asking:

1) has anyone done this yet?
2) if we do it, should we contribute that for 2.7?
