  Other than for NewsItems, that is so.  There are a couple of reports
which look for recent NewsItems and generate links to them.  Similar
reports could be made for other sorts of content, or all content for
that matter.

  I would like to hear about the changes you had to make.  There may
still be a way to manage this without having to change the internals.
If not, they may be changes I'd like to adopt, and so I could do
whatever cleaning up you have in mind.
