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). -- Jim C.
