[wp-hackers] Adding meta data to categories

That's a good idea. We already have a shortcode plugin that uses the  
following php function:

$content_array = array_map('trim',explode('|',$content));

Basically, it breaks $content into array items when delineated by  
pipes ( | ).

The only problem would be trying to remember the order in which the  
array items need to be entered, but it would still be fairly human
