      • Places
        • tag autocomplete (bug 415960, dietrich) - needs UX analysis
        • bulk tagging/editing (bug 412002, dietrich) - new patch imminent
        • reducing fsyncs (bug 442967, sdwilsh) - inconclusive and complex, probably not in 3.1 timeframe (See Places:FsyncApproach for details).
