That's probably the best place to put it, but I'm not very interested
in applying it, at least before 4.0. Post 4.0, I *might* take a
patch that adds a "front-page" field to contents, giving us three
* Always on front page ("sticky" in forum parlance)
* Never on front page
I have some things in my head for the next release that would make
"never on the front page" useful.
