* efm: use elm for file popup
* efm: add disk space used bar for disk volume icons

* like you see on windows for example (search and multiple columns etc.)
* a touch screen android-style scrolling fullscreen app icon style
* music-control: allow manual addition of new named mpris services
* connman:
* divide the popup list with group headers like bz5 into tech

* massively flesh out connman vpn support in the gui
* vpnmanager + create method support
* one day look at network manager support
* look into iwd too

* bz5: add obex agent support integrated with efm for sharing via bt
and downloads when received via obex bt (~/Downloads/...)
* battery: redesign popup to list other battery details like the
charge if you have multiple batteries for real or separately the
battery levels of e.g. bt mice, kbd's and other such devices
* battery: on click display popup like wireless/bluez5
in popup show detailed list of battery devices and data per device
* like bluez5 use genlist with groups for core batteris vs other misc devices
* filter out hid devices with batteries from core battery state
* display other devices in above list separately
* handle string capacity values like Full, High, Normal, Low, Critical...
* randr: get auto layout to handle screens laid out like:
[dp2-2][dp2-1] <- 2 external monitors
[edp-1] <- laptop main display

if not on a real screen/zone
* device manager: new tool to browser /sys etc. and display nicely present
hardware and device drivers and state
* sys top: new tool displays cpu/mem "top" - evisum. we want it to be shipped
with e though so it's always there guaranteed have back-end system status

view to this back-end data log and follows it as it updates.

* edge bindings - selecting edge dialog needs a redo (no edje for all content)
* e menu - add obj cache for menu and menu item objects to reduce costs
by far the biggest cost in showing/hiding menus is realize/unrealize
and this is almost all object creation/setup/deletion costs. menus
can be more responsive (on low end systems) if... we avoid this. to
avoid... have a cache of spare objecta to re-use.
* e comp object: we dirty far too often in wayland especially with
glmark and this leads to a stream of gen and del textures. is this
really needed and ca we cut it down?
* tiling: doesnt retain layout across restarts
* tiling: doesnt handle impossible layouts well - had to remove min size
* tiling: doesnt honor size stepping too well
* tiling: probably need to flatten out to table for saner layout
* tiling: probably could do with analysis on features vs i3 etc. to be
more "up to snuff" and competitive
* tiling could be smoother in its layout handling
* smoothly move/resize windows from old to new positions/sizes
* don't delay many responses and do it instantly with the above anim
* probably can do with more actions for bindings for moving/sizing
* packagekit: much btter support with pre-made config/profiles for the
package manager (autodetect if possible)
* not just updates but also install/uninstall of pkgs with a minimal
front-end to back-end cmdline tools (use shell wrappers?)
* cpufreq: support pstate: hwp_dynamic_boost, no_turbo, display turbo_pct,
* advanced per-device config (xinput device by device). current is simple
generic "global" config e.g. for the mouse
* look into libratbag too for gaming mouse stuff if its worth using it or
just doing the same
stuff ourselves as we will probably have to via libinput
* some kind of game mode and detection that will do things like:
* disable screen dimming/blanking
* set cpu to max performance
* lower priority/nice of non-game processes or even sigstop procs
* disable notifications
* explicit toggle and possible auto-detect of games running
* per app environment launch config - allow different TZ, LOCALE etc.
per app and set up env appropriately
* back-end e system process for monitoring/polling and launching etc.
* split e up into front vs back-end with back-end doing things like
* monitoring processes/system (see above)
* launching apps (cheaper to fork a small process)
* synergy-like e <-> e mouse, kbd, cnp, dnd proxy/sharing
* cpufreq - move to config dialog for settings
* set governor for ac vs battery (or powerstate levels)
* set pstate min and max for ac vs battery (or power state levels)
* set backlight and dim timeout per powersave level
* battery - set powersave levels based on ac or battery level
* efl: flat theme redo
* efl/eo: start using efl loop as core loop
* begin to move some login out into efl threads+loops
* to change ui - callsync/async back to ui/main loop
* have a deferred deletion of evas objects in idler
* hide instead of del, stash in invisible place, delete l8r in idler
* have object stash for adding basic objects
* have generic/basic object stash
* have edje object stash
* mixer: improve ui in emixer
* emixer - support selecting recording dev for apps like pavucontrol
* look at showing vu bars per recoridng or maybe output devices
* offer ability to show vu output in mixer gadget
