screen_meta and plugins : ??!!

screen_meta and plugins :

from last trunk, now screen_meta is called in


94 screen_meta($pagenow, $hook_suffix);


$pagenow is (for a new admin menu) admin.php

and $hook_suffix = myplugin/toto.php

in /wp-admin/includes/template.php

3180 function screen_meta($screen, $suffix = ) { 3181 global $wp_meta_boxes; 3182 3183 $screen = str_replace('.php', , $screen);

so now all my metaboxes must refer to 'admin' or to the file of the main menu ... not cool !

3222 $helppost? = ('<a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Writing_Posts" target="_blank">Writing Posts</a>'); 3223 $helpgeneral-settings? = ('<a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_General_SubPanel" target="_blank">General Settings</a>');

i would appreciate to have something like $help = apply_filters('contextual_help_link', $help, $screen, $suffix);

what do you think !
