Just some thoughts,

I strongly agree to the proposed technology changes, particularly in the
database, as it will definitely improve the storage performance.  In line
with the objectives to make Continuum a slick CI server, I think the design
changes is a good move as well.  In my opinion, having plugins will provide
a platform for flexibility and a workflow-type of approach in managing the

My proposed features would be the following:
1.  Aside from the improvement in the UI, I think a visual representation of
statistics would be nice.  Graphs of the success rates, charts of project
health, etc.  I think Bamboo has it as telemetry.
2.  Distributed builds, this has been started before but it was never used.
I think this would be a strong point in using Continuum if it were
available.  Hudson has it, iirc.  I think implementing it as a plugin would
provide more control to it.

Again, just my thoughts.
