[wp-hackers] Incorrect documentation for register_post_status

That's the thing - I don't want posts with that status to be public.
However, in theory(according to the documentation), setting
"show_in_admin_all_list" to true should make posts with that post status
visible in the "All" section of the posts list.
What I'm not sure about is what the "protected" property of a post status
is used for.
