That's something that I'd definitely like to see. Being able to work 
with an entire series would make things a lot more manageable in this

Wow, looks great!

Since you don't touch the models there, I'd like to set up a beta site, 
(which would use the same database as the regular site) and use your 
changes on that. Once we've got some feedback from core patchwork users, 
we can merge these to the main site.

So, I'll get the reworked A/R/T code whipped into shape, apply your 
regesign series on top of that, and we can go from there.

Thanks for the contributions!
