Seems like a good time to update this. If I don't comment on an item,
that indicates it's not a high priority right now (but I don't want
to delete items now and then need to re-add them later).

Eventually we'll need this. Tentatively, we hope to address it in the
second half of next year.

This is toward the top of end users' wish lists. It's a census-manager
function, so it's related to "Revamp census manager" below.

Coming soon.

This would be very nice to have, and it is a logical successor to the
immediately preceding item.

[I think that "merge" subitem has already been completed.]

Work begun last year will resume soon.

Is this actually "in progress"?

This is the greatest GUI improvement we could make. End users have
been asking for it for years. I've never worked with the wx grid
control, so this is beyond my personal capabilities.
