There is a list of TODO's in the last comment on the merge
ticket, #2532.

The branch also needs to be brought up to date with the current
trunk. In addition to the TODO's there are usability issues, but
the basic account handling is there except for the seven issues
mentioned in the TODO.

If you are really going to spend some time on this I'll get the
branch updated with the changes in trunk for you, so it will be
easier for you to work on this. Your household sounds like the
ideal testbed for improving usability.
