[wp-hackers] 'request' filter for adding custom post types to blog indexes

After minimal testing it seems to be working pretty good. I have not tested
it with multiple loops, widgets that list posts or mare than one custom post
type yet though.

The request filter seem to pass a different array for every possible page so
I'm thinking that a creative person could do some really interesting things
things with it, especially if they were to test values instead of just
element existence. I'm hoping to get some more testing done on this and try
to get it documented somewhere but I've got a few things eating up my time
for a couple of days so I'm not sure about that, but I will post about any
problems I run into while testing it out.

I have followed that topic, as well as just about everything that has to do
with custom post types. I'm beginning to believe that WordPress will finally
be able to do everything I've been trying to do for the last couple of years
and maybe I'll finally start doing something with all those websites I've
been paying for!
