Hi Jonathan

Personally, I'd love to see
* some particular media enhancements, namely audio device enumeration 
and selection [1] and support for keyboard "multimedia keys" [2]
* TabPane improvements to be on a par with browsers (support for 
reordering/dragging [3], having a close button on all tabs, allow to 
"middle-click close" non-active tabs, etc.)


Kind regards
