You run into the "how many things do you want to force an admin to 
build, maintain and rely on"?

I won't argue against it, but it's not the way I'd take it. I'd rather 
stuff things into a database and build static pages out of them as 
requested. Or perhaps a better way would be to store messages static, 
meta-data in a database, and build indexes on the fly, since the 
messages won't change....

Stress is when you wake up screaming and you realize you haven't fallen 
asleep yet.
