All of these are on our list.  The fairly simple name display changes and (6) being
high priority but not with specific release assigned to them yet.  I suspect the
low hanging fruit will make it into 3.0 and (6) will be post-3.0-final.  Martijn

at some point. Alas time is available only in finite quantities... ;-)
