Should I reply? :) My current pace is the only good measure.

1. backtrace printig fix in librep. 
Backtrace is reeeaaally useful, but currently if backtrace-on-error is
t, then it's printed even if an error is signaled inside of
condition-case. (in a week or two.)

2. keyboard layout switching fix.
This is an intermediate fix. User will have to choose 9 buttons vs 5
buttons + working multiple layouts. (It may be possible for press and
release, 9 buttons may be received, only motion be limited to 5.) It
will be a command line option, not the build-time choice.

When this is accomplished and tested by Yenya and me, and pushed to
HEAD and tested by others, then I'll ask a release 1.7.

3. Upload my pile of recent todo list items to the wiki.

4. Other keyboard major changes.

Great. (Later I may ask you to test lib X11 / randr / xinerama
functions for multi-head support.)

Ah yes, but each has different ability and taste, and it precedes.
Maybe we should brush up the wiki "Proposed goals" page first.
