        Umm. I think that such a list has already grown too large to
 be of value; I can come up with a few hundred items along the lines
 of "would be nice if ..".

        Read http://www.livejournal.com/users/gravityboy/15401.html

        In essence, this is akin to what Andrew Suffield calls "Voting
 for more money". A reasonable list of reasonable, achievabel goals
 for Etch is of real value. However, that requires thought, judgement,
 and triaging out marginal and unrealistic ideas out of the list; and
 that appears not to have been done.

        Well, I have said my piece, Feel free to ignore it.

Never call a man a fool.  Borrow from him.
