In relation to Carsten's email, I'd like to ask about possible
integration of headings and plain lists.  I remember that such
integration was difficult because of the implementation of
outline-mode, but I don't know the details.  In case this is possible,
here are a few reasons why I'd like it:

1. As opposed to headings, plain list items can consists of more than
   one line.  On the other hand, they cannot be assigned tags or
   marked TODO.  So, sometimes, one has to use one or the other.  This
   is especially problematic, if you would like a TODO item below a
   multi-line plain list item.  It would be great if the features of
   headings and plain lists could be, at least to some extent,

2. Code duplication.  At the moment, AFAIK, you need to write separate
   code for headings and plain lists.  Also, some features exist for
   both but in different forms, for example, TODO/DONE for headings is
   essentially the same as [ ]/[X] for plain lists.  I don't mind
   having different representation for the same concept as long as
   their share the same handling code.

However, I feel that any attempt at integrating integrating headings
and plain lists would require a significant rewrite.  Carsten, could
you please comment on the main difficulties of such integration?
