Create a new content item This proc creates versioned content items where content_type iscontent_revision or subtypes of content revision. There are procedures for each other base content item. This procedure uses package_instantiate object. Under PostgreSQL the object_type new function must be registered with define_function_args.

parent object of this content_item
item_id of this content_item. If this is not specified an item_id will be generated automatically
defaults to current date and time
