It is confirmed that WordPress 2.7 will have the Sticky Post feature built into the core . It is a simplified version of my plugin, WP-Sticky, in which it has just one style which is “sticky” as compared to two styles  in WP-Sticky which basically sticks all the post that are marked sticky on the front page. If I am not wrong if there are 2 posts that are marked sticky, the 2 posts will be sorted by date in descending order (latest first).
I decided to retire WP-Sticky as WordPress 2.7 has that built it into the core. Now my plugin count has been reduce to 14.
Due to a large number of request, I decided not to retire WP-Sticky and I have updated it be compatible with WordPress 2.7. See here .
