Hi folks,

Here is the detailed TODO in all it's glory. We _really_ need to
get this over with, so please help us out to get this release
out the door. I'll mark names by the tasks based on conversations
I had with folks at WineConf (and on the list). If you notice any
mistakes, please let me know. Items marked with (???) have no owner.
If you think you can help on any of these (including ones that do
have owners!), please let me know. Help is needed and appreciated.
If it's not clear what needs to be done for any of these, get in 
touch with me, I'll be more than happy to help you get started.
