In addition to a small discussion i had with Kiran Diwakar at the DevXchange, I've collected some good (and mostly old) small ideas for improvements in Spectrum.

Many of them seems to be forgotten by CA but I think, most of them are worth of being released. 

 

Here is my list in chronological order:
