"mini roadmap" for userland for 3.7-dev branch

Hi John,

As I've previously stated, I don't think a roadmap is something
desired, i.e. people should work on whatever areas they want, and not
be "forced" to complete a roadmap. All in all, this is an free
collaboration project as far as I know it.

However, we could create tickets in the tracker with the "hot items"
so that anyone wanting to do the work can pick it up in a easy way,
and work of them if desired.

Best regards,
Antonio Huete
