I've plopped the GObjectification item down on that page, though it 
needs some expansion.

I also added one idea that I had come up with some time ago as well 
involving contextually relevant information display in the conversation 
UI.  Feel free to berate me for being ridiculous if appropriate. :)

I definitely think this page should get some major attention right away, 
throw as many ideas as we can in, then kill the ones we think are too 
simplistic or not worthwhile and finally promote the list with great 
fervor in an attempt to track down SoC students. :)
