Improve meta_box api

I think we should work on improving the API for handling meta_boxes, specifically when it comes to the ones dealing with post_meta.
Specific improvements I'd like to see are:
Automatic handling of checking against the revision, DOING_CRON, DOING_AJAX, and DOING_AUTOSAVE before firing the save method.
A registration method similar to registering post_types so that plugins that add post_types can see registered meta_handlers like registered post_types can be seen.
Built in handling for the post_type_supports() methods based on arguments when registering the meta_handler.
