well, I think that is one of your freedoms as free software
developer, to decide what you do with your time, and if 
somebody disagrees with your priorities (which will for
sure happen, sooner or later) that person can go ahead and
implement that feature in a personal tree and submit it
for inclusion ... 

I don't think that a public TODO list would change that,
nor the expectations folks have, it would just give an idea
what _you_ personally consider interesting areas to work on.

but if you think that such a list would restrict your
'freedom' in working on whatever seems like fun to you,
I'm perfectly fine with that too ...

have fun!
Herbert
