I guess my first quesion would be "why?"
in reply to Frontpage-able Snippets?
Before we would suggest having development effort (which might not be all that much in this instance) put forth, we should have a compelling justification for the change.
I don't have any idea why posts to the section can't be FP'd currently either...perhaps there was a good reason that someon e who has been here longer can offer.
My two-cents...in reading through the snippets I found some nifty stuff, but nothing so fantastic that I would have FP'd it..so I can't see the point in making the change.
