Personally, I'm thinking about OSX support.
After the fdopostgis is out, I'd like to give it a try.

I have started to work on OGR-like tools for FDO: fdoinfo, fdo2fdo.
I use them for internal testing of my fdopostgis and I'm going to polish
and publish them just after I have fdopostgis out.

Also, Haris' Fdo2Fdo utility is great!

That would be very nice.
