I guess we should think about how stable 1.5.1 is before answering
this. If it feels like there are too many critical bugs (read:
crashes, major problems) so that further development would be haunted,
there's no point starting work on 1.6.

If you're looking for personal opinions, I think we should start work
on 1.6. Prioritise the front end overhaul (so work on the usability
enhancements pointed out by Gabriel White and others). Once we've done
that, we can start working on the back end ideas in the codex [1].
