The certification system is one of the nicest features of SqP. But
apart from that, another facilities is minimal.
It would be good to modernize it and convert it to something more than
just place to identify people/voting.
In my vision it would be cool to merge facilities of
SqueakSource/SqueakMap + Blog + issue tracker + wiki + SqP to form
something like squeak planet/world. But its a bit too ambitious :)
