I think we should look a lot at the front-end performance of WP:


We should make update notification for core WP more robust, possibly 
including sending an email to admin_email.

Consider bundling a new theme, two that come to mind are Regulus and 
Sandbox. (This would be in addition to, not replacing Kubrick.)

We should shoot for some sort of update notification system for plugins. 
It would be neat if the email sent to admin_email about a new version 
included a note about which plugins were compatible or not.

Of course we should continue to make design and usability improvements, 
and improve speed, security, and scalability as we become aware of issue.
