We should be getting those changes in the future (hopefully the near future)

Would better logging from any of the servers help? If so, do you have ideas 
for what you'd like to see?

ADM is nice but needs:
-64 bit support
-better documentation (it's been claimed that there is none but I promise

-general code cleanup

It's taken a back seat of OpenAFS work, which is more generally useful.
