Think about 2.0 is a very good idea

> - clean up the api and remove cruft / inelegant parts / backwards
> compatibility wrappers
+1 here (i think with 2.0 we don't need backwards compatibility)

> - do an overhaul of the api docs and get it to a good state (doxygen wise)

> - get rid of old labelling completely
+1 as long es new labelling has the same (and more) functions and speed 
than old labelling

> - get rid of old symbology completely
+1 the same here the same level of speed and functionality (and more) 
than the old one

> - merge many of the plugins directly into trunk (north arrow, gps,
> coordinate capture, delimited text, georeferencer, some form of raster
> colours / 1 band raster colour table etc.)
+1 very good idea .. I'd like to see more and more plugins getting into 
core (but that also reminds me on the idea of creating an "my own 
toolbox" menu where i can put just the functions (plugins) i need and 
not everything somewhere under "plugins". Someone on the mailinglist 
also wrote something about the idea of consolidating all the menus which 
are dealing with database connections. So a menu and GUI-overhaul would 
be also a good idea

> time is going into stabilising for a 2.0 release
+1 (big) bugfixing on some issues is always a good idea

What i'd like to see also in 2.0 is the threading and globe thing as I 
am still in the need of a 3D workflow and have to take a look at my data 
and hoped to see a start in 2.0.
And there are a few other suggestions that would (from my point of view) 
easen the use of qgis .. but thats another discussion somewhere else ..

I like the roadmap .. And I'm curios on 2.0 ;)
