Thomas, many thanks for doing this.  Since we've actually manged to
make some progress and regain terrain, I'm updating your list with
what's currently left.  We should stress that we really welcome input
from *anyone* on pull requests! Reviewing a contribution from someone
else is a good way to start learning the project and its workflow, and
it helps the core team by having more eyes on new code.

So this is what's still on our plate:

I started the review on this one, should be fairly painless.

I've got these two in progress.  Help from GL experts would be
welcome, as I mentioned in another thread.

Yup.  Min, if you can give the OP a bit of guidance on the Config
machinery here, that would be awesome.  I'll try to help as well.

This one is actually important in that it will help us finalize the
architectural breakdown into well-differentiated components that is
already under way.  It also means that it requires more bandwidth tahn
we have available right now.

I'll get to this one as soon as we flush the rest of the easy stuff,
as it requires some dedicated effort.

Already replied on that one, let's sort out the frontend_ns ideas and
we should be able to finish this one.

Thanks again for this status check!  We've fortunately (thanks to
everyone who's pitched in) made good progress since your original
email, so I think the disaster of death-by-PR-drowning has been
averted for now.
