Can an extra column be added to the posts table for ordering by posts by an arbitary priority or weight, a bit like you can in Drupal?
I use wp mostly as a cms and rely on custom types for most of what I do. Adding a priority selectbox (values something like -10 to 10 defaulting to 0), is something I always need. Adding this as a meta field up-to now has gotten me so far. It's obviously flawed since to do an accurate select and sort requires loading the whole table and sorting with php.
While the table can be modified easily enough to add this, it would be nice to have it natively available.
