Description (last modified by scribu)

Currently, it's really hard to change a single aspect of the built-in post types.

As shown in 3:ticket:21943, users are reverting to all sorts of ugly workarounds.

What's needed is a filter for the args array, before any processing is done inside register_post_type().

21944.diff applies the 'post_type_args' filter right after the defaults are set.

To summarize, nacin pointed out that with the filter, devs could also mess with capabilities, menus etc. which would break things.

And allowing the filter for non-core post types is very niche, since plugins can just define their own filter, before calling register_post_type().
