[rust-dev] 0.5 priorities and beyond

With 0.4 nearly complete, I have been thinking a lot about planning for 
0.5 and beyond.  A common refrain around MV, at least, is "oh, let's fix 
that in 0.5".  At this point I think we plan to do everything from 
fixing some outstanding bugs in the regions type system to porting the 
windows build over to visual studio to complete traits to implementing 
partial compilation.  In other words, a lot of stuff we'll never 
actually finish in a month or two.  To that end, I was thinking that 
perhaps we could try to plan a bit more up-front our 0.5 priorities.  I 
made a wiki page:


where I was hoping that we could note down things that perhaps ought to 
be priorities.  I figure people can add what they think is important and 
we can hash out at the next meeting  what ought to be 0.5 and what ought 
to come later.  Things that should come later can then be added to the 
roadmap as necessary.
