Create Chatter via Action Framework

We created an apex class that that creates a chatter post.  We pass:
- Parent record (where to post the chatter, or a user's profile feed)
- Body
- Mentions (users to also mention in the post)

We use this in a ton of Skuid based business process - to trigger notifications or alerts, preferring to see the logic right in the Skuid page, rather than via Process Builder.

We'd love to see this as part of the Action Framework and eliminate this apex call!

Version 10.0 has this functionality minus the "Mentions". ;)

yay!  Maybe we can merge in mentions.  If not, I revise the idea to include mentions.  :)  Common use case ... when advancing a record through a process ... we chatter on the record, and mention someone to take action.
