[wp-hackers] Making use of The Loop in a shortcode function

That's pretty much it for PHP5, AFAIK.

In php4 you'd just assign it.  

A code sample from a legacy theme:
$temp = $wp_query; 
$wp_query = null;
$wp_query = new WP_Query();
$wp_query = null;
$wp_query = $temp;

The old school object shuffle.

I've never thought of using it in a shortcode though... nifty.
