Yuppie's already done most of them. Work on my my own folder_contents  
replacement has been sporadic but is finally coming along and I hope  
to finish it in March. Then I can work on my table-free replacement of  
main_template.pt. Beyond that I'll try and work on form(lib) views for  
some the rest of CMFDefault - the brackets because I think that beyond  
2.2 a move to z3c.forms is should be seriously considered. Fortunately  
the code z3c.forms code is close enough to formlib to make migration  
fairly straightforward.

Add to that Jens' CMFActionIcons folding into CMFDefault and  
presumably Tres' "ursa" replacement for Globals.py and Yuppie's  
workflow work.

Seems reasonable to me although the Zope 2.12 support is more nice to  
have than a real requirement. I'm thinking of giving a presentation on  
CMF 2.2 at Europython which would also fit the timeline and perhaps  
encourage me to do some of the documentation I've been wanting to work  
on for the last couple of years.
