 I think it'd be nice to be able to have an option to allow posts to have
 the same slug. Now I realize this can create major problems if permalinks
 are set up like "/year/postname/" or something, so I suggest that if this
 becomes a realization, that this new option have no GUI to change it in
 the admin area. We don't need tons of noobs screwing up their blog by
 playing with this option. This option would be for advanced users only.

 And from poking around, I realize that this may be a bit of work (i.e. the
 database itself makes sure that post slugs are unique), but I think it'd
 still be worth it.

 Any thoughts on this?

 And no, no patch yet as I figured it wasn't worth my time if this ticket
 ends up getting marked as "wontfix". I am willing to create a patch or
 help or whatever though if the head honchos think this ticket is
 worthwhile to invest in.
