But shouldn't register_post_type() and it's related functions be contained
in a class as they pass around the global $wp_post_types? Those functions
were written relatively recently.

Should be interesting to see if globals are abandoned for static class
variables going forward.

I think most of this stuff would make a good wiki article so everyone is on
the same page. Should we start one?
