Because if they're willing to put any actual effort into it, the right
way is to post that same item to the mailing list where it can be
discussed.  If it survives such discussion (very possibly in a modified
form) *then* it belongs on a TODO list.  The first problem with a wiki
TODO is that it will not reflect any sort of community consensus, only
the opinions of whoever edited the page last.  The second problem is
that setting it up represents a unilateral attempt to redefine (bypass?)
the community's design/development process, which is a process that has
served us well for many years and is not showing any signs of being
