Personally, I think CreatedData and CreatedBy would also make good
candidates for core.  They are very useful for things like forum posts
where you may want to list by the original poster and by the last
modifier.  But the "created by" would have to have a special line
added to the page format, right?  I seem to recall that the author
line is really the last modifier line.  Maybe firstauthor...  (creator
seems a bit too much).

And as for moment by moment granularity, can't an admin set up a
custom pagevariable for these kinds of features if he wanted them,
since the time and ctime lines are both saved as timestamps?

Anyway, I can do this pretty easily in FAST Data but it would be
easier if it was put in core for general use.  Just my two cents.


PS.  This new pagelist feature is absolutely awesome.  Can't wait to
start tinkering with it.
