Just a few more ideas for things that need work, from FAQ:

* Support text with embedded NUL characters
* Support Exuberant Ctags format
* Update TM's Ctags from latest Exuberant Ctags or Anjuta-tags
* Better tag generation support (ie. Javascript, etc)
* Better auto-completion support (ie. local vars, etc)
* Better color scheme support
* Support for plugins in High Level Languages
* Better, fully functional split view
* Better session/project support
* Plugin API and documentation improvements

These are just some of the things I hear people asking about on a fairly 
regular basis on the ML, bug tracker, feature requests, and IRC.  As you 
know, some have had lots of work done on them already and are just 
hanging around gathering dust.

And as Dimitar mentioned, there's plenty of open bug reports.
