- no use-building for projects, which means code-navigation only works
  on open files
- quickopen is very slow here even in release builds
- qmake support can't parse anything but very simple projects
- workspace-concept isn't finished
- debugger isn't there - AFAIK
- designer-plugin is barely working (though we could just disable/remove
  that for the 4.0 release)
- shortcuts-overriding/scheme still not done
- area concept not yet done

to name a few I know of. IIRC message freeze is in 2 weeks, which is
really close and I don't see us making that deadline, unless we simply
release what we have right now.


Time to be aggressive.  Go after a tattooed Virgo.
