They are my oldest and deadliest enemy. You cannot trust them.
If Hitler invaded Hell, I would give a favourable reference to the Devil.

The Ping module has been coded and backported to 1.1, and is in testing.

Trackbacks are fairly simple in principle, until you get to autodiscovery.

With autodiscovery, I have to -
  • Parse any markup in the post (BBCode, Textile, Markdown, Creole, reStructuredText*) to generate pure HTML
  • Parse the HTML to extract links
  • Parse the links to distinguish links to media and files from links to web pages
  • Parse the web pages to find the RDF trackback data (which is likely to be in a comment, so an HTML parser won't even see it)
  • Parse the RDF data for the trackback URL
  • Actually send the ping
  • Parse the XML response

* Yes, there's lots of goodies coming up.
