FYI: TODO update

TODO update for HEAD.  Most of this applies to one or both other
branches as well, though.

Actually, concerning `$' in object file names: I believe there are only
one or two buggy lines left.  Will enable as soon as I have a
corresponding test done.  :)

Some of the other item should also be rather painless.
Unless anybody objects, I will apply this to HEAD.
