I don't have specific plans for when such features would be done. I'll
try to help solving the limitations and assist Stuart, but for now I
plan to follow my original roadmap and work on the planned 2.66
features and then subsurface scattering for 2.67 probably.

Mainly we need (in no particular order):
* Improved attribute support
* Preview/render resolution
* Curve/ribbon primitive
* Minimum pixel width
* Transparency optimizations
* Memory usage optimization
* Hair BSDF
* GPU support

Maybe Stuart has more specific plans for what he wants to work on first.
