+Stuff that needs to be done and wishlist:
+
+These are in no particular order.
+Some might be dupes, some might be done already.
+
+UNICODE:
+- Windows: Can use Unicode, but might only allow "codepages" ... Use
+           GetProcAddress() to find Unicode entry points on WinNT-based
+           systems, otherwise try to use a sane codepage.
+- Mac Classic: apparently supports _something_, but I might just write it off
+               as a loss.
+- OS/2: Codepages. No full Unicode in the filesystem, but we can probably make
+        a conversion effort.
+- Everywhere: Move stricmp() out of platform layer and make it grok UTF-8.
+
+
+Stuff:
+- Other archivers: perhaps tar(.gz|.bz2), RPM, ARJ, etc. These are less
+  important, since streaming archives aren't of much value to games (which
+  is why zipfiles are king: random access), but it could have uses for, say,
+  an installer/updater.
+- Stack allocate in stripAppleBundle() (platform/unix.c) instead of calloc().
+- Reduce malloc() pressure all over the place. We fragment memory like mad.
+- macclassic.c :
+  "/* (Hmm. Default behaviour is broken in the base library.  :)  )  */"
+- Platforms to port to: Amiga (needs platform driver), DOS4GW (platform driver).
+- profile string list interpolation.
+- We have two different ways to find dir entries in zip.c.
+- Do symlinks in zip archiver work when they point to dirs?
+- Enable more warnings?
+- Use __cdecl in physfs.h?
+- Look for FIXMEs (many marked with "!!!" in comments).
+- Probably other stuff. Requests and recommendations are welcome.
+- Cygwin should use unix/posix and not win32 platform code.
+- Expose the archiver registration mechanism to the outside world.
+- Find some way to relax or remove the security model for external tools.
+- Non-blocking I/O
+- mmap() in posix.c
+- OSX shouldn't use ~/.app for userdir.
+- fscanf and fprintf support in extras dir.
+- Why do we call it openArchive and dirClose?
+- Sanity check byte order at runtime.
+- Memory locking?
+- Find a better name than dvoid and fvoid.
+- Can win32.c and pocketpc.c get merged?
+- There's so much cut-and-paste between archivers...can this be reduced?
+- General code audit.
+- Multiple write dirs with mount points?
+- Deprecate PHYSFS_setSaneConfig and move it to extras?
+- Why is physfsrwops.c cut-and-pasted into the ruby bindings?
+- Replace code from SDL...
+- Should file enumeration return an error or set error state?
+- Update internal zlib?
+- Need "getmountpoint" command in test_physfs.c ...
+- Look for calloc() calls that aren't going through the allocation hooks.
+- maybe other stuff.
+- Is -Wall enabled?
+- Make mutexes recursive, so callbacks can call into the API.
+- Archivers need abstracted i/o to read from memory or files (archives in archives?)
