Absolutely. It would be great if we can finally get them
over with. Not so sure about ConstifyData, but there we
either need to get rid of it if nothing is left to do,
or provide a comprehensive list of what is to be done
like we do in the other cases, so we have a better feel
of the scope and magnitude of the task.

This should really be moved to the Wiki :).

Yes, I think so. From past experience, once you
get past the first few days of understanding what
is going on, you can fix/implement a lot of these
little features.
