When do you think that WordPress is going to completely rewrite their code base so it’s an actual CMS instead of a hacked together glorified blogging system?
I find I get that question quite a lot and it annoys me. WordPress is being rewritten all the time. Check out the development that happens on Trac.

WordPress IS way more than a glorified blogging system already and if there are specific issues you have with the way it’s coded, patches are welcome!
