I would like to compile a list of possible improvements first,
then discuss with Akopia what to do about it.

For each point, I see the following scenarios:

A) Akopia implements it. The patch goes into CVS, most likely
   into the development branch.
B) Akopia doesn't like it or would not bother to implement it
   => either my company (CNS) or another IC hacker may
   implement it. The patch goes first into the LINUXIA branch.

Later on, we can decide if it is worth to produce an addon
to IC containing code from the A and B scenarios.
