Unfortunately, org-mode is too complete already.
Otherwise we could have a bounty fund race on Worg...
list the top ten requested features and ask a price for it according
of what you believe it would cost you to implement it.
People who donates can donate to one or the other feature request. If
the price is reached, work can start. If the limit is not reached in a
certain time the money might be spend to other feature request in a
equal manner. Some sort of org-mode own kickstart projects.
Just guess that people like to donate more easily if they have a
certain target in view.
However, org-mode might be to complete and to uniform to allow a clear
separation of different feature requests.

Complete OT:

As for Lenovo Thinkpad lines durability, can't say anything positive
about my T410s (I was very happy with previous models).... the T410s
was defect after almost a year.... had hard fights to get it still
fixed outside of the one year warranty. Here in Japan, Panasonic Let's
 Notes have a good reputation of being a road warriors companion and
they have a insane high battery life. They are sort of thick and ugly
but that even more confirms them as "working horse" instead of a
designer gadget. They are not available in Europa as far as I know but
Panasonic has a line of Tough-books they are very similar to the
Japanese Lets Notes... as the name implies they are well tough...
