Just another data point: Merge tracking would help my particular
situation a lot.

That said, if the process overhead of pushing other features out
first isn't too great, I don't see much reason to sit on unrelated
features. Copy/move improvements would be nice - it would save me a
fair amount of silly one-off script writing. Sparse directories are
intriguing, but I realize that won't be available until clients catch
up. An bugfixes are always good.

Most of the rest doesn't impact me directly, but I'm not the only
consumer, so I have no real comment there.

(Off topic, but are there any reasonable SASL management tools out
there? I use it for mail and wouldn't mind using it more widely, but
handling changes is a major PITA using saslauthdb2 and related, and
it just turns in to yet another parallel authentication mechanism
that confuses end users.)
