It's fairly simple to make articles that are in the future be treated  
as unpublished. The problem is caching - you need some way to  
invalidate the cache as soon as the date passes, so the article will  
appear. Otherwise the article will never appear until the cache is  
invalidated some other way (e.g. by posting another article,  
commenting, manually clearing it, etc).
