Apart from the management aspect (which is very much a valid concern),
others have expressed a desire to be able to easily search the list
for "easy" Todo items.  We got that working by adding the [E] tags to
those items, and it's now very convenient to search for them.

If we split the page up into subpages for each section, that feature
would be sunk.

The size of the page really isn't something we should be worrying
about.  As Greg points out, we have the usual wiki per-section edit
capability, so in practice we will almost never need to edit the whole
page at once.  The only reasons for doing so are to perform global
changes, or alter the intro text.  All day-to-day maintenance of the
list, such as adding new items, marking items as "done", etc. should
be done via the per-section [edit] links.

Cheers,
BJ
