I have also been looking at that document. My absolutely No1
top-of-the-list for 1.x are exclusive locks and fs-level ACLs. I've come
to the concluseion that without these, Subversion remains a toy version
control system compared to the *real* competition out there (I don't
consider CVS competition :-).

I also think that locks and ACLs need similar modifications in the
existing code, so it's best if they're implemented in parallel.
