I think the TODO list is an incredibly useful tool and I agree that it
shouldn't be clogged up by wishlist items (i.e. items someone thinks
are worthy enough to add, but nobody is up for working on them yet).
However I do think wishlist items serve a purpose too: They demonstrate
a desire from users for a feature that could be picked up on and
converted into a TODO list item by an interested party.

I suggest having __two__ lists: a wishlist and a worklist (with the
latter being the existing TODOlist)
