	IMHO, when we get some timer after finishing most of the kernel
	work, we need to redo the Makefile system, so it is a little
	more flexible.

	Also, we would want to make our network tree flexilble, in the
	sense, you can pull out or push in (via a moduler approach) any
	network protocol/interface we don't like on the fly.

	And things like IRQ affinity, Binding specific processes to one
	or a range of CPUs, and nifty thing.... :-)

	Secondly, I have written a TODO system, which uses XML+XSL that
	has support for sub-taks, and assigning owner/status to
	sub-tasks etc.  I will finish it once I am back from .de.
