Just before I forget, here are some more just in case :)
Not everything will fit but I'll leave it so at least it's written 

* HaikuPorts (like BSD ports).
Today again I tried to build something that needed something else that 
needed yet another thing... not mentionning each using a different SCM 
that you must port if you want the latest version.
I could contribute the autoconf-aware makefile template I made for 
It's probably borderline but having auto cvs-up and dependancy tracking 
would be likely quite challenging.

* Spice up our MediaPlayer
** Overlay support
** replicant/nsPlugin support
** Add protocol addons (nodes ?) to support http,rtsp...

* ARM(no-mmu) port
** Zaurus
** Qtek/...
** GSM stack ?

* Bluetooth stack
but maybe we could get some help on that.

* Serial port driver (including PCI cards, probably the worst part) and 
tty module.

* Expand the "new" driver architecture (PnP) and port old drivers.
Ideally multiaudio drivers would provide an interface to a common node 
that would publish in /dev. An AC97 module would publish a multiaudio 
interface from  codec-specific modules and so on.
But that needs a lot of design thinking first.

* r/w ext2/3 fs
** xattr support

* FAT could use some help as well:
** identify bottlenecks and provide better locking (shouldn't be too 
hard, there is only a single big lock currently, I already started 
that, never finished).
