I hate to get involved in this discussion, but it seems to me that the 
last thing that any of the core developers need at this point is more 
people coming in and heaping work on their plate. There are barely 
enough hours in the day for them to accomplish their existing tasks.

If you have something new you'd like to see done, that's great. It's 
always nice to know what's wanted, and how it might be accomplished... 
but unless you're ready to take it on yourself, chances are low that 
someone else on this mailing list is going to pick it up and run with it 
for you. About the only thing you *can* expect is Karanbir (or someone 
else) giving you a polite suggestion that you follow it up yourself, and 
come back when you have some work to show.
