 Replying to [comment:26 helen]:
 > yurivictor moved the code into a plugin while we were at WCSF, and it
 looks like they tinkered some more afterward, but I don't think anybody
 ever really said they personally wanted to keep working on it.

 That's part of my argument: Since this is a core feature that has issues,
 we either have to do something to improve it or figure out a way of
 phasing it out. I think Post Formats could be valuable to WordPress and
 its users, but it would require some rethinking of the use case and more
 robust documentation and UI implementation. Currently it feels like the
 remnants of an abandoned dream more than a core feature. I'd be willing to
 contribute to high level thinking and reevaluation of what the formats do
 and how they should be implemented to meet current user needs and demands
 while ensuring consistent behavior. As for actual code implementation,
 others would do a better job than me.
