Is there a way to easily extend the editorial calendar, build in additional functionality/settings? I've been using it a while and it is fabulous for most of my needs, but I've been thinking of a couple features to make it fit my blogging process that may be too specific to me, but ones that I would be interested in working out by building on the plugin myself--but naturally I'm not too keen on straight hacking the plugin especially since it will make maintenance (plugin updates) difficult.
The most important feature I'm thinking of (maybe it's even planned in some future release? *crosses fingers*) is a "slush pile" column in the calendar, where unscheduled posts (maybe some elementary sorting here?) are listed, and can be dragged and dropped to any of the date cells to schedule, or dragged/dropped TO the slush pile column to un-schedule. The reason for this is because my process is to use the plugin to also list out blog post ideas (from plain idea to full-length drafts) and repeatedly moving this huge list across weeks (according to my blogging schedule, which is per category) is tedious.
I don't know if this feature is interesting enough to warrant coding it into the plugin, hence a "plugin for a plugin" might be the way to go about it, if such is possible. Is it?
