 I doubt that would be useful, because, well, what value would it actually 
bring beside formalism? Somebody's high priority is somebody else's low 
priority. We have version control system for knowing who and when changed 
something, and commit log or comments for why. So it's not really different 
from plain '// TODO <optional comment>'. Besides, I think we've been cleaning 
up the codebase from things like this for the last 2 years.

 So this solution first needs a problem it's supposed to solve, sorry.
