>    o some kind of "organizer" for parameters and variables

I'll take one of those, please.  I can see how it might be a tricky feature though.  Do you aggregate existing variables, but allow editing/viewing them from a single pane, or just scrap it all and have one multi-variable block?

I would go with simply either adding a new multi-variable block, or modifying the existing one to allow multiple variables.   Don't do any 'automatic' variable aggregation.

Notes are cool, but their context can be easily lost when moving blocks around.  I always thought that each block ought to have a "comment" field among the other properties, which is just a dumb text blob.  When you generate the python, this could even be inserted as a real python comment.  I can't say how many times I've opened a block and thought, why is that property set to that value?  A contextual comment for the block would help there I think.  If you want to get really crazy, you could even display a truncated version of it on the block itself in the FG, the same way values are shown.

I second the request for a 'notes' field for all blocks, but also want to have a more flexible 'note' block.   Ideally, it would support multi-line (HTML-formatted?) text, and allow setting the size/shape manually.
