get more of the functionality merged into vanilla git, to have at least rudimentary interactions with git-only users (0%)

reliability features (e.g. being able to query when a file was last fsck'd on any device, consistent hashing to shard across devices) (0%)

features that widen applicability to data storage problems that are not currently well-served (think outside the box, eg. system backups, media galleries, large file sharing via email) (0%)
