Well, I don't think it's a good idea not to care about a deprecated 
Wishlist. People may lose a lot of time adding items to it or trying to 
implement them. I've added a warning to the page.

Yes, but some items (like the ALAC cleanup one) was right on the spot 
and not in any other TODO...

I agree, but maybe a few useful items could salvaged and merged in the 
SVN TODO (or it would be better in roundup?). I'll try to remove the 
cruft and see what remains...

That's my point of why you should care about this list...
