Get something that works well, under all situations, and it'd be
accepted I'd say :) I've been meaning to combine all the different
install/upgrade functions into 1 class.. but.. Just havnt gotten
around to it, So theres a lot of duplicated code at present there too,
so just dont make it too hard for someone to reorganise the code in
the future ;)

Its certainly my choice not to seek full time employment related to
WP, some people are surprised i havn't applied to Automattic, But
Web-related positions (or even ground level computer tech positions)
are rare to come across in my area atm, so.. Even though i am seeking
full time web dev. employment, It just aint happening around here, and
I'm really not interested in moving to the big smoke :)
I certainly take on some freelance work now and then when someone
contacts me, but really don't advertise or keep an eye on the job
lists.. I was planning on getting into that side of the world more
this year though!

Ah, I see someone else has posted a link to trac and all the details,
Trac's the best place to raise ideas of contributions, but not feature
requests (Leave that for wordpress.org/extend/ideas/ )
