These are both resolved in newapp

I've been looking at some of these - several of them are *make sure it
works* things that may not need any work.

Yes it is, in the next day or two.

Yes, me too - as soon as newapp is merged, we should be able to get it in
quite quickly (the various CStr traits in parallel will become Bytes, and
use ObjectName various places that it is appropriate).

Not *super* simple, as the way the keybindings are written is not well
suited to modular key-combos.  I don't expect this to make it in by 0.11,
but it will be very nice.

514 won't be fixed, but we should come up with a message somewhere to help
prevent confusion.
478 only affects python 3
I think Evan said he is going to get to 476 this weekend
451 is resolved in newapp
Nobody has been able to reproduce 440 as far as I know, so it can slip if we
don't figure it out...
371 should be a small fix, but the cause is rare
136 and 124 both have to do with embedding, and I am not familiar with that
code.  Right now, embedding just doesn't work I think.
I think 131 and 29 are really the same, and addressed as part of your Pickle
PR that we will save for 0.12
13 is vague, and I don't think anything *needs* to be done for 0.11.
