It is much easier to break stuff than to build it.

Removing the miner and GUI is a nobrainer. Just remove it and let someone else to build GUI on top of JSON API, in just a few weeks there will be a handful of competing GUI implementations. Every PHP 'programmer' out there would take a shot at it. The best way to improve stuff in open source world is to let go.
There already is one client that runs via RPC, and it is very unstable...I think its a good idea, in theory, and may be good for some people, but most people don't want to have to bother with opening multiple programs just to run Bitcoin.  There already is bitcoind which does what you want, just help make Spesmilo better.
Currently, the devs dont want to deffer too much from what Satoshi intended.  This keeps one client which is "mainline", but with all the new clients there should be plenty to do what you want. 
I do, however, agree that "Generate Bitcoins" should be removed or, at least, renamed to something like "Donate CPU Time to help the Bitcoin Network" due to the extreme difficulty of mining on CPUs these days. 

Spesmilo isn't unstable but it requires a patch to bitcoin that has been ignored,
http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3856.0

This is needed. But nobody has merged it in yet.
The patch isn't necessary if you run bitcoind 24/7 anyway (which I do).  It is still unstable for me.  I set some setting a long time ago, and now it wont open to let me revert it (and I have no idea where it saves it, some retarded qt location which I can't seem to find).

You must be using the gitorious branch from luke-jr... Try this version https://github.com/genjix/spesmilo

I guarantee that's stable.

True, but why the hell it requires all those widget and X libs.

bitcoind doesn't require wxwidgets. The GUI isn't built when you compile bitcoind.

How about a 1000 BTC bonus for new users?  That way everyone will have bitcoins.  I'll ask Gavin.   Grin

Great idea!  Then I'll write a script that installs a new client, transfers the free 1000 BTC to my other client, deletes the new client and repeats forever!  Give everyone free money, and we will all be rich!

I would like to be able to see my client running on Fluxbox WM.  I'm guessing that it tries to minimize to a tray, but does not show up in the Fluxbox tray.  Some command line switch to prevent auto-minimizing would be helpful.

This would be nice:

My top feature request is the ability to choose which coins to send in a transaction.

In another thread, they proposed bringing accounts into the UI, and doing them a little differently. Every transaction would be labelled with an account name. You could filter your wallet and only view txns for a certain account. And most importantly, you could pay from an account, and it would only use coins from that account.

This would make accounts be like virtual wallets, so you could have anonymous accounts and identity based accounts, and the coins wouldn't get intermixed. This should satisfy at least some use cases for choosing coins to pay with.

Maybe these should be called something different from accounts, as current accounts are kind of fictitious. Moving money between accounts is currently just bookkeeping, while with what I am talking about it would require an actual transaction. Maybe these should be called something like virtual wallets, or wallet partitions.

This is a really old thread.  Strangely, the best ideas here still aren't implimented for most clients.
