Etherpad is frequently used as a checklist, e.g. for coordinating releases. It would be neat to have an etherpad-lite plugin that was actually a decent checklist, instead of copy/pasting silly UTF characters. This should not be part of the core etherpad repo, but done as a plugin (probably living in mozilla github repo and npm installable).
