Hi Nick,

So it was late at night and I never actually said what I meant, can't
you read my mind?

The point that I meant to make was that the to do is misleading and
should be re-worded to be a GUI change, IAW the conclusion we came to
in the conversation you cite below.

This is a question about possible implementation that might be simpler
than previously thought, IIUC plugin keybindings groups get their
keybindings saved and restored for them, although they are dynamically
added entries.  If nothing is saved then they can be set to a default
value.  The build keybinding group can be re-sized based on the config
entries at startup, which seems to me to be very similar to plugins.

Sure, don't dispute that.

As a general question that I have never thought about before, how is
the to-do list (which is in the VCS and the distribution so it must be
official right?) maintained and community agreement reached on what is
in it and the priorities?

I wasn't trying to talk you into doing things you didn't want to :)
