Excellent! Soon as I finish this thingy I'm working on, I'll really have all
sorts of goodies to play with!

I think you're right about this. I think Topics will be something really,
really useful to the people who manage and organize the overall site. In
*most* cases, I wouldn't think members would need that kind of tool. If we
could have everything, then sure... there will probably be some people who
want it. But, I'm guessing that there are other areas that are more
important to work on at this point. (Propertysheets for users!
