Full Text for Leading Articles (despite "read more")
I'd like to see the option to allow leading articles to display full text, despite them having "read more". Ideally the "read more" link (if shown otherwise) would be hidden. This way, the blog's leading articles are fully available immediately, and then the intro articles would remain shorter with "read more" links.
This Joomla! forum thread (http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?p=2718693) has some suggested code for creating a template override. Perhaps this code can be used to add the feature, along with code for an on/off switch in the back-end.

You can do this now with a layout override for the featured or category blog layouts.
