Well, nobody is paying me, but I want to 

- fix the btree problem leaking unused pages (I think I'm getting near,
  I just haven't had free time during the last month).  This one is a
  must to me.

- try different regexp algorithms, compare efficiency.  Both Henry
  Spencer's new code for Tcl, and Baeza-Navarro shift-or approach (can
  be much faster than "traditional" regex engines)
  (do people care for allowing "search with errors", similar to what
  agrep and nrgrep do?)
