Hm, cool, I think some of those are simple enough even I might be able to
do them =).

Though I find the document very lengthy and could potentially be split (
that may however reduce its grep-ability )

Some things ( ideologically speaking ) seem rather brief, for instance, the
size of "make ithreads more robust"  seems really terse, and I'm not sure
if this is due to lack of content to put there ( ie: lack of ideas, lack of
things to explain that are problems in this department, etc ), or if its
somehow omitted due to the format being a choke point.

I'd imagine some of the things on this page have also been attempted in
part, and may be lying around incomplete on a branch somewhere ( I count
439 branches, and I have no idea which of those are still relevant, or
pertain to work in progress things on this list. )

I could of course be talking absolute nonsense, as I somehow got too close
to bleach when cleaning earlier and might have toasted a few brain cells. =)
