Actually, I use:

self toDo: 'Not forget to refactor this!!! It's ugly!!! bla bla bla...'.

And then I look up for senders of toDo: with alt+n

The implementation is:

Object>>toDo: aString
    "Do nothing, just annotation"

I think it's more descriptive than just a Symbol flag. But, it all depends
of what you are used to.
