 Definitely understand the reasoning, but it seems kind of excessive to
 create an extra database entry for every post, especially since many posts
 are probably never edited in the future and then never needs a revision.
 It wreaks havoc on the WordPress import process (revisions are created for
 posts that didn't previously have revisions, screwing up the IDs and thus
 breaking the thumbnails).

 What if the revision for the initial post is created under the following
 two scenarios:
 * The person posting the article != the person listed as the author of the
 * When someone is editing an article after post, if a revision for the
 initial article does not exist.

 (Putting in a separate ticket/patch for the importer bug)
