Another possibility for "questionabl" TODO items is to allow users to
vote on them. Bugzilla (just as an example) allows users to vote on
bugs, but they're only given a limited number of votes, so they have to
decide what's most important to them.

There's also the idea of "TODO purgatory" that I mentioned earlier.

The issue I'm thinking of here is that there are things that would be
very beneficial for users to have but that much of -hackers won't care
about. Right now, we don't do a very good job of identifying those
things (IMHO).
