Already planned:

I'm doing one or two more 1.0.2 beta versions and then I'm starting 1.1 
and putting all the minor stuff on hold.

I may send a list of what 1.1 will be about or perhaps use the wiki for 
a more public to-do (not decided on this yet -- I don't mind an open 

This also means that if you have something that frustrates you _a lot_ 
with the current versions and you think it's easy to fix, you may want 
to mention it -- but if it's already been mentioned a few times, 
chances are that it's postponed because it's not a minor thing, or 
it'll automatically be done in the 1.1 overhaul.
