Lassie was a no-show, however Anthony Ferrara showed up and saved the  
day. (More on that later). Timmy, oddly enough using a stolen  
Blackberry was cranking out text messages and was finally rescued and  
as you would guess, arrested for being in receipt of stolen property.

I agree, this would be a wonderful featured to have support in  
Joomla's core for 1.5 and beyond. I also like the idea of letting the  
super admin decide what level can use it. Hopefully it can also be  
used regardless of what editor is selected in Global Configuration,  
or at least have an easy way to toggle between them. Or have some  
icon displayed to let the person editing the document that it  
contains embedded PHP code.
