When I saw the "predictions" thread that struck me as the ultimate in
community roadmap system.  Look at the people who made predictions
last year that were right...those are people you should trust for
predictions this year.  Look at people who have said "I know this is
going to happen in 2006 because I'm going to do it" and you can have
some confidence in those predictions.  But in the end, all roadmaps
are just a grouping of predictions until they are committed, qa'd,
documented, and released.
