+Some notes on features under discussion or consideration, and some
+vague implementation thoughts:
+
+* Add some kind of filter for "the directory we care about"
+ - pseudo operations would only go to the server for items
+ in this directory
+ - optionally, logging could be generated for accesses
+ *outside* this directory
+ - intent is to reduce server load dramatically, and improve
+ and/or streamline the logging path when, e.g., doing
+ host contamination checking
+ - probably implies a new message type, MSG_LOG.
+
+* Database recovery/reconstruction
+ - capability for failing harder in the event of apparent
+ corruption
+
+* Log database performance improvements
+ - some way to do "live" queries against the log database
+ while the server is running
+ - some way to flush unwanted data
+ - possibly a way to separate logging into multiple files
+ or otherwise restrict the amount of stuff produced
+ - logging filters of some sort
+
+* Canonicalization speedups
+ - possibly implement some kind of cache of directory names
+ and known canonicalizations
+
+* Possibly limited handling for extended attributes
+ - specifically, the case where they're used to manpulate or
+ query the plain old modes ala chmod/stat.
+
+* Test cases
+ - boy, do we need test cases!
