[wp-hackers] Trackback and Pingback in WordPress

"The whole point of trackbacks is that they *aren't* automatic and they 
are a more private way of saying, "Here's something related to something 
you did."

Coming to WP from MT, I think of Trackbacks as being somewhat automatic, 
but might just be my perception.  I have often wished that WP 
auto-detected the Trackback link when I used the "Press It" bookmarklet, 
so that I didn't have to hunt for it on the other person's site and 
paste it in if I started my post from there.  If I'm reading about a 
plugin and I want to post about it, I use the bookmarklet to start the 
post, and I wish the "Trackback URI" field was automatically populated 
for me.  (Of course, with the ability to delete that text if I didn't 
want to send a Trackback.)
