Language choice kind of matters not at all to most projects, so the question in my last post is really about what's worth learning to broaden my horizons. It's also a question that's limited to a pretty strict subset of my followers. Here's one explicitly for the bikeshed crowd.
My goal with manakin is to have a totally awesome UI. So, an open poll to help me brainstorm for what I want it to do and get me excited about it:
What features would make for an awesome UI in your opinion? What features have you seen in an existing client and loved. What misfeatures have you hated? What do you really wish your client could do but you've never seen?
Features which don't apply to the terminal still welcome. If you're aware of limitations on scope of a feature (e.g. only makes sense on a SmartPhone), that doesn't make them uninteresting, but mentioning that would be great.
