I seem to be writing a windows (well, multiplatform) LJ client.

Anyone got any feature requests?

(one feature it *will* have is autosaving to disk)

Offline composition of course... tab completion of friends names? Context-sensitive help on LJ specific tags? Or is it hard to wire stuff like that into your editor widget? What widget set are you using?

PHP-GTK, as I already have much of the backend code for that.

Well, as I'm sure any marketing drone will tell you, the two most important features should be that it is bug-free and crash-proof ;o)

Being able to choose icon/avatar.
Syntax highlighting for XML/(X)HTML tags.
Post preview (obviously without journal styling).
Retrospective post editing.

Is being able to make all of my previously public posts friends-only &c#amp;c, ie bulk attribute changing of past posts a possibility? Do you know of a utility (GUI or otherwise) that does this?

Posting in multiple communities and/or my own.

I now do this by cut and paste, and changing the target LJ, but that's more like a workaround than a real solution

A meta-psychic link, where you plug a USB cable directly into your brain and all your latest anecdotes and recent events are instantly uploaded to LJ. If I could read and post comments on my friends journal in the same instant that would also be most helpful.
