I have some suggestions:

Implement the new S&L containment we were discussing earlier, one that
supports adding plasmoids and takes better advantage of larger

Implement the smart activity switching functionality we were talking
about earlier, with an API that lets applications and widgets provide
activity switching hints.  What I mean by "smart activity switching"
is proving a popup asking the user if he or she wants to switch
activities under certain circumstances, such as at particular times,
at particular physical locations, based on your ip address, and so on.

Finish the plasma-based login manager someone was working on (if it
isn't already done).

Per-activity panels (if this is not too small of a project)
