Something I would love to see and would drastically improve the quality of 
gump runs is the ability to do nags on prereq failures. I have attempted to 
implement this in the past but failed and hate bash/bat/xsl scripting ;)

If that was to be done then I think quite a few projects would become 
considerably more aware of gump and start working towards poking those who 
have failing pre-reqs
