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  

   * Normal
   * 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.
