Large Chunks of funtionality that need work:
============================================

- Statistics
	- Simple
		- resource analysis class/system wide
		- resource correlation course wide
		- other stats from CAPA
	- Complex
		- foil level analysis/correlation measures
		- derandomized foils analysis
		- have/view reason student selected a foil
	- resource quality, how good is a resource

- Messaging
	- email gateways into/out of the system
	- handle more types of communication
	       - messages seeded with data from spreadsheet
	       - chat / whiteboard
	       - "round robin" feedback handling
               - "mailing lists"

- Grading
	- simple grading needs cleaning up (see Guy's TODO list)
	- survey data extraction ( stat complex could handle most of
	  this)
	- essay / shortanswer
		- instructor / autoget all/none
		- team based submission
		- peer graded
		- peer suggest grade

- homework engine
	- math stuff
	- CAPA problems 
	- <imageresponse> need Java applet

- Exams

- RAT
	- choose parts
	- set conditions
	- language for conditions
	- some kind of non-anti-save

- Publish
	- review step
	- co-author locking
	- auto thumbnail / convert images
        - stricter control mechainsms
             - copyrighted stuff
             - Private stuff
           - ACL? (by author or resource?)
        - update metadata without full publish

- printing
	- tex target (CGI / daemon?)
