Excellent feature! Thanks a lot!
Unfortunately most of the times I do use this approach:

* TODO something [0/3]
  - [ ] part 1
  - [ ] part 2
  - [ ] part 3

I would like to get the blocking behavior for the checklist also.

"Any TODO which has incomplete child items is blocked."

Even better would additionally be something like:

"Any TODO having at least one item checked is allows the TODO to be set to the
next possible state, for me it would be 'INWORK'."

Any chance to get at least the blocker feature - the order feature would at
least for me be lower priority?
