Some ideas :
* templates for HTML popups (already done this in Lizmap, but why not
having it in Qgis)
* tile generator : I agree with Giovanni Allegri, beginning with a mbtiles
generator from a layer/a group in Qgis would be a first step, as Tim
suggested in Lyon hackfest. But why not having the powerfull mapcache being
able to read QGIS projects as well.
* WPS : we could also expose some QGIS method to provide WPS. In the
beginning, simple things as buffer, etc. (based on new QgsExpressions
capabilities : geometry and python/C defined functions), and later (more
manpower needed), it could be great to have Sextante internal methodes
totally decoupled from gui, so that QGIS Server can use Sextante for WPS
