i fixed some annoying bugs in the playlist, doing so i could understand
the whole beast a bit better.

0.9.0 bugs milestone's description says:
Bugs that could be fixed before 0.9.0, but can be postponed for later

So that leaves 36 open tickets in "features freeze" and 23 to be fixed
before -test1. We are seeing the end of the tunnel !

We would need to review all those tickets, and see what can be done,
what can be postponed, what is blocking a test1 release.

I believe the 1st quarter of 2008 is not an utopia.

> Suggestions most welcome.

Let's continue =)
