I'm not sure if you're making a point there, or just a witty observation, 
but for the record I would accept dictionaries adding "todo" as a jargon 
entry. I don't think it is widespread enough to count as a regular word, 
but if we can have "another", "anywhere", "nowhere" and "pocketbook", I 
don't see why we might not someday have "todo".
