Future-dated posts should really get their own hook, for a variety of reasons.

The attached patches create a new action, 'future_post'. These patches prevent publish_post from being triggered on future-dated posts. and 1.6 patches included.

Can you think of anything that would break (plugins maybe?) if publish_post were not called for future-dated posts?

What are your thoughts on building pseudo-cron functionality into WP and having future-pings be handled internally?

I would like to see psuedo-cron built-in.

publish_post should still be called either on the publish time, (if using psuedo-cron) or on the first pageview after the publish date. (This may be a problem for sites that get very little traffic.)
