Have you looked at the Slash code lately? Not the 0.3 stuff Taco released
(that was evil), the 0.9 stuff and above at slashcode.org. It's really
been cleaned up a lot lately. #include <std_disclaimer> - look really,
really closely at the changes log, I'm in there somewhere :-), but IMHO if
you were wanting to run a Slashdot style web site at the moment then the
Slash code is the best - most feature rich, fairly easy to understand,
easy to impliment etc. (Though admittedly the PHPSlash people have a
better long term plan). But actually I'm not sure that a Slashdot style
site would benefit Slug much. What would it actually be used for?

Most likely a custom made Slug web thingy would be useful. I'd be willing
to help with something like this.... Might be a good idea to work out
exactly what it was supposed to do first though. :-) I'm hearing kind of
nebulous ideas floating around without a clear focus.
