Hi Jaap, I've noticed your tagging in the past few days on Launchpad.
I think that your idea of papercuts and missing as immediate items,
and the rest as long term, is terrific. It has been some time since
I've filed a Zim bug or wishlist, but when I do I will try to suggest
such a tag. I won't tag the items myself, though, as the line is of
course arbitrary and I do not want to overstep my bounds.

Best of luck!
