This may be a cross between a nit and me possibly just being defensive,
but "The existence of half-finished features such as the global database
(gloda)" seems misleading.  Specifically, as the developer of much of
gloda, I'm not sure what the other half of the feature is.

I think it'd be helpful to anyone taking on the analysis task if the
point was slightly elaborated upon or it was linked to a meta-bug/list
of bugs/wiki page that provides some context/rationale.  Especially
since I suspect many of the half-finished-seeming things likely are
directly tied to lower level debt[1] and being able to readily follow
these threads would be useful to the analyzer.


1: Like the reason gloda doesn't index NNTP accounts.
