Manager not inherited in model inheritance

I have a base model that defines some published fields and has a manager that knows how to use them. When other models inherit from it, they get the fields. However, they don't get the manager. (It is intentionally left out

I know I can just set the manager explicitly on every child model, but that is the sort of thing I was hoping to avoid by using inheritance.

The knowledgeable jdunck explained that a new manager instance has to be made since managers know what model they are for, and the child models need a different manager instance than the parent. It isn't as simple as removing line 77 in the above code.

Still it'd be nice...
