There were a variety of things in recent threads that probably didn't
get captured as todo items; though several probably aren't 1.0 stoppers.
I don't think it's all on the Qt guys to catalog those, since there were
also items brought up by others.

Stuff that I remember that sounded possibly 1.0-ish:
 - the new dispatch status and fixing that deadlock
 - some way to implement dcop-like controlled reentrancy?
   (I consider this "if someone starts prototyping it tomorrow,
    maybe we could get enough info to decide whether to do it, but 
    otherwise not a blocker")
 - fix the spec/docs on the NoReply annotation so people know what 
   the heck it is
 - introduce a way to list exception names in introspection
