If you take a look at the TwentyTen CRM theme (
http://www.billerickson.net/twentyten-crm/ ) you can see how we moved the
post editor inside a meta box (Notes), so it can then be rearranged like any
other meta box.

In the functions.php file around line 247 you'll find "Begin moving post
editor to notes metabox"
