We're preparing the Drupal 4.7 release.  As such we're mostly  
interested in (i) bug fixes, (ii) usability improvements and (iii)  
performance improvements.

So if you're looking for a task, I'd be happy to assign you one.   
Basically, have a look at http://drupal.org/node/31896#comment-55591  
(or the entire thread) and pick a number.

Not on that list are doing some performance comparisons between  
Drupal 4.6 and the forthcoming Drupal 4.7 (HEAD) release.  We need to  
know if there are performance implications.  Build you site in Drupal  
4.6, benchmark the page generation time of various pages, upgrade to  
Drupal CVS HEAD, and do the same benchmarks again.  Report the numbers.
