Things I'd like (in order):

1) RH 8 client + 4.1 API (we'll be running our servers on RH AS as soon as
the RPMs finish building so I'm less bothered about RH8 server support)

2) Client tracking.

We're looking at a supported Linux desktop. This would be necessary for
that, so
this is would be nice for me.

I'd also like the ability to push out updates, but this doesn't need to be
part of current
per-se. If current does client-tracking, I can interogate the DB myself and
write something
to force out updates.

3) subchannels. Well, it'd be nice, but I can fake up everything without
them (burn
that disk space) whereas client tracking would let me do things that I
can't do now.

4) User tracking. Don't really care here. Yeah, it'd be nice, but I'm not
going to miss
it anytime soon.

For me at least 1 is a near-term need and 2 is a "would be very nice to
have soon"
thing. 3 and 4 can wait.
