Ha!  I think C-x C-f ~/.todo-done RET is where the fun starts.  Or
ends, as the case may be.

Yeah, there should be a way to manipulate the items.

Does it mean you want to write one if none exists? ;-)

I've heard reports from people using outline-mode.  C-k and C-y are
your friends for manipulating those :-)

Then there is records mode.

Then there is Hyperbole.

Then there is planner.el

Then there is organizer-mode.

Then there is todoo (note the extra o) which is kind of like a
cross-breed between outline mode and todo mode.

Oops.  Caught me...

It's called gnus-todo or todo-gnus I think.  But it was taken and
improved by John Wiegley.  Now it's called nntodo, if I'm not
mistaken.  I think John does not have time to maintain it anymore and
gave it back to me.  And I don't have time, either...

And then there is another alternative called nndiary.

Oh, there is also a package which provides an Rmail-like interface to
things which are like bug reports.  Sounds a lot like todo items, only
without deadlines.  IIRC, it had a way to interface with Rmail, the
thinking was that many such things are based on an email.  Maybe it
was called something with `bugtracker' in its name.

There is also GNATS (don't confuse it with GNAT), now called PRMS
maybe.  It has an Emacs interface which looks somewhat like MH-E.

Isn't it fascinating that there is such a large assortment of modes
and packages that you can use?  Maybe the way people want to interact
with their todo items is very diverse so that's where the many tools
come from.
