I'd do it as a new CF Type, which means less overriding / hacking.

You also likely want to remove the Article HTML scrubber, otherwise
you're going to have some things destroyed.

We've quoted adding this to core for a number of customers, but nobody
has sponsored it and we have a large todo list that it never seems to
make it to the top of.

Sane branches targeting master (for 4.4) which add a new CF type or if
someone wants to work with us to add it, we're always interested.

Keep in mind, if you write a large amount of code as a pull request,
you're asking us to spend time reviewing it and then spend time going
forward maintaining it.  When we work with a client to add a new
feature to core, we consider future maintenance as part of that work.
