*Haven't checked if this exists"

Slug creates a text string from Title, yes?

Could there be a function that, when enabled, automatically produced a 
text block "excerpt" from the post contents?
I imagine it having a configurable length, so that, say, the first 24 
words were selected and displayed as an excerpt, followed by something 
like "[...] --more--"
And perhaps, like slug, that text block would be accessible for editing.
