Coming back from TUG 2004, may I forward you some important question.

It has no doubt that TeX has already reached some of its limits, it 
also appeared that omega is far from being achieved in a next future. 
The question seems to be: what can be the future of TeX?

I propose to collect the desiderata of people really using TeX, 
whatever user level they are, about what they are missing in actual 

For example, a TeX guru was missing a real dedicated programming 
language with better access to data structure, someone else was missing 
metapost like features and funny typesetting (typesetting text along 
curves and not only lines...)

Please, share your ideas.
