I think these are the most important tasks in etc/TODO.
I will move them to the top.

Small but important fixes in existing features:

* Bring back the feature of showing the part of the buffer that is a problem
  for the use of the preferred coding systems.

* Make compile.el record the markers that point to error loci
  on text properties in the error message lines.

Important features:

* Provide user-friendly ways to list all available font families,
  display a font as a sample, etc.

* Program Enriched mode to read and save in RTF.  [Is there actually a
  decent single definition of RTF?]

* Implement something better than the current Refill mode.  This
  probably needs some primitive support.

* Implement primitive and higher-level functions to allow filling
  properly with variable-pitch faces.

* Implement a smoother vertical scroll facility.

* Implement other text formatting properties.
** Footnotes that can appear either in place or at the end of the page.
** text property that says "don't break line in middle of this".
   Don't break the line between two characters that have the
   same value of this property.
** Discretionary hyphens that are not visible when they are at end of line.

* Make movemail work with IMAP.

* Port Emacs to GTK+.  (Relevant work has been done already.)

* Make the Lucid menu widget display multilingual text.

* Remove the limitation that window and frame widths and heights can
  be only full columns/lines.
