Admin Footer Filter - For Branding Admin Pages

    Many a times its not possible for a huge commercial website (like http://www.linuxjournal.com, etc.) built with wordpress to say to its users what its built with. As long as wordpress is limited in use for personal blogs wordpress branding in the admin pages is acceptable. But i honestly feel the beauty of Open Source is how it lurks beneath the hood and let people make their living by using it and contributing to it. I personally am developing a Medicine related portal and wordpress fared better as a CMS than others for me. I know its easy to use some plugin for branding but the way they do it is neither efficient nor straight.

    I propose a filter for admin-footer in /wp-admin/admin-footer.php

    The code patch is quiet simple.

    #######################################

    -- echo __('Thank you for creating with WordPress').' | '.__('Documentation').' | '.__('Feedback').' '.$upgrade;

    ++ $admin_footer = __('Thank you for creating with WordPress').' | '.__('Documentation').' | '.__('Feedback').' '.$upgrade;

    ++ $filtered_admin_footer = apply_filters("admin-footer", $admin_footer);

    ++ echo $filtered_admin_footer ;

    ########################################

    This lets plugins manage admin-footer more efficiently. Hope this sort of filter makes it into the main trunk soon.

    Cheers to WordPress and the whole community behind it.
