you are right, there should be more discussion.

my top priorities are:

Include statement. Would make it easier to reuse code. this is not in 
the Prioritized Wish List for Next Release, but i think the java-esque 
auto dependency finding system mentioned there might be even better. for 
me this is extremely important.

better string support.

a dynamic structure like lists in Python for example. arrays are not enough.

let miniAudicle search for audio-files relative to the path of the 
ck-file. now it is extremely annoying that miniAudicle doesn't find 
audio files that are in the same directory as the ck-file. you have to 
use absolute paths or the miniAudicle preferences. both is not really an 
option if you receive sixty projects by students each with audio files 
and ck-files...
