EX Note: 
Trying to use hook_form_FORM_ID_alter() with node forms is a pain because the form ID is always "[node-type]_node_form" - that is, it's different for every node type. The Drupal 6 workaround is to use hook_form_alter() and check the form to see if it's a node form (doing something like isset($form['#node'])), but in D7, there's a better way; you can use hook_form_BASE_FORM_ID_alter(). With nodes, the base form ID is "node_form," so you can just create an implementation of hook_form_node_form_alter(). Ah, much better.
