lot of work (I think really a lot of work), but it is probably a worthy 
goal for the long run

replacement of the browser component with javafx is a good thing.

Replacement of every thing? I don't know. Will javafx really be the next 
big java gui? Would it be worth trying to get to a html/http gui and get 
rid of swing completely?

For the near future:

* get a bugfix release of 3.0
* complete migration to httpclients new api
* make recording of jsf sites easier
* discuss replacement of logging framework
* look at memory consumption of the tree view listener
   ideas where:
     - store only the last/first X entries
     - store only marked entries (might be a header field)

I think xml has served us well. Every other format has to prove, that it 
really can compete.

+1 for looking at undo/redo
