I used to have a plugin (pre-3) to do this. However, I've stopped
distributing it because 1) There were some security issues I didn't want to
fix and 2) It seemed like Custom post types made this easy, so why bother to
do a plugin which would have 100s of feature requests, when it is fairly
easy to just set up custom post types and a couple of forms (if you want to
avoid the dashboard) to do it.
