A hearty +1 to all of what you've indicated!

Additionally, in 2010, I'd like to work with other devs that care to restore
some sense direction to this product. At a minimum, that means identifying
and killing the bugs and misfeatures that are impeding forward motion, and
thinking farther ahead than just "the next release" in terms of feature
planning. If asked to name specific TODO items, I'm not sure I'm ready to
do that today (which itself is probably a symptom of the overall problem),
but surely amongst the lot of us we can begin to shape the future of
Subversion. We may never achieve a vision as concise as "to be a compelling
replacement for CVS". Or maybe we will. "To be a compelling replacement
for git/Mercurial", perhaps?
