If you're looking for suggestions, I'd suggest you focus on the 
anti-spam stuff.  We've all gotten pretty hooked on Mozilla Persona for 
authentication, to the point where we may not bother with other 
authentication methods in the early releases, so the spam stuff is much 
more likely to be useful soon!

Also, we're still sprinting at PyCon today and tomorrow, so if you're 
already set up, now's a great time to hang out in IRC while all the devs 
are focusing on writing code.
