The ones you don't get to I'll take a whack at this weekend.  Mention which 
ones of these you fix on your SVN checkin comment and I'll knock them off the

Means should be fixed.  I categorized the list in chunks: the first chunk is 
"already fixed" (the commented out ones are bugs I closed out, the 
non-commented out ones are the ones I didn't yet).

The second chunk is "we should fix this for 1.1".

The third chunk is "it would be nice to fix this for 1.1, but if it doesn't 
get fixed I'll live." 

The rest are hold for 1.2, bad idea, not an actual bug, etc.

Pull up the bug and read the long description before closing these out, 
sometimes it has specific tests.

And LED control command?  Sounds right up busybox's alley.  If it's small and 
simple and #configs out cleanly, sure why not.

But I'm not holding up the release for it, so get it in quick. :)
