I was just getting ready to implement this myself. Very happy you saved me the trouble! The ability to click the stars in the admin interface is also a super nice addition. Wonderful work! Thank you so much! PRO tip: Although, I couldn't find it documented anywhere, as a developer you can get a list of all the sticky posts with get_option('sticky_posts')
