I have several patches that I'm planning to check in soon (I'm waiting
to see if we have any post-release tweaking to and/or branching to do).
This list is off the top of my head, but I think it is complete:

 - New option: --flist-from.

 - Fix include/exclude of a name with an interior slash to not become
   anchored to the root (e.g. foo/bar.txt should match anywhere in the
   tree that ends with that path).

 - Fix include/exclude to not treat '*' like "**" whenever there's a
   "**" on the line.

 - Fix include/exclude of "**/foo" to match at the root.

 - Add some form of --delete-source (old --move-files) support.

I have patches for all of these already, and none of them are going to
be hugely disruptive, but it would be easy enough to just toss in a
branch tag now, just in case we need it.
