Thanks to Bastien and Thorsten for advancing this opportunity.  I think
this could be a good chance for the community to collect and prioritize
some of our more ambitious development goals, and to widen the pool of
users who are familiar with the Org-mode internals -- a wonderful
journey to take through some of the most hackable code I've ever had the
pleasure of working on [1].

If there is any interest in working on the Babel (source code) elements
of Org-mode I would be happy to serve as a mentor.  Some ideas that come
to mind include;
- implementing a multi-programming-language "notebook" like console
  interface build on top of Org-mode and Babel (with both Emacs and
  HTML interfaces)
- adding support for asynchronous code block execution
- adding support for piping results between code blocks allowing many
  blocks to run concurrently (probably best combined with asynchronous
- adding support for handling output written to STDERR

I'm sure there are many more exciting things to be done, the above are
just those that come to mind at the moment.

[1]  I can't count the number of times I've sat down to implement
     something thinking I had hours of work ahead of me, only to find
     that thanks to well placed hooks, and thoughtfully created and
     exposed variables the task was trivial.
