Share Your Wishlist Project: I'd like to ask everyone to post an entry on your own blog listing the ten features/changes that you would most like to see.... I've created a feed to display links to all the wishlist pages in the sidebar, so this will make it easy for others to find and read your list.... You can also tag your page by pasting the following link at the bottom of the post: typepadwishlist To view posts others have contributed to the Wishlist Project, visit
