That method won't work. We'll probably need to use something like the
register_activation_hook(), register_deactivation_hook() stuff I
proposed during the thread on overriding core functions. We pushed that
aside because we decided to go with the simpler pluggable-functions.php
method for 1.5.1. Maybe now is the time to investigate it again.
