I know for 1 thing, that the update to the ecommerce to use the new
formsapi will take quite a while. I am looking for a few good coders to
get at least the core complete.

I am hoping to get the store module done in the next couple of days, to
hopefully kick start the process.

Any other ideas will be most welcome.
