I'm definitely familiar with it, but...  I was referring to functions to add the *standard* meta boxes to a custom Edit page, not custom ones.

Looking at it again, it appears that you could use it to add the standard boxes to a custom page, simply by hooking the standard functions instead of custom ones.   Hmmm....

Actually, the implications of that are huge. In a good way. :-)  Thanks for pointing out the obvious to me.
