Well, the new "fast" dictionary module should solve one of the biggest
issues, the bottleneck of the dictionary lookup. Beyond that, it would
be nice to decrease the memory footprint of the dependency parser.

Using UIMA-AS allows for scaleout, in combination with the fast
dictionary can allow very fast processing. Maybe it's not a feature per
se, and maybe it will come from an outside project, but I think
infrastructure that makes it easy to get a highly parallel and very fast
version of ctakes up and running would be a nice addition.

(By the way, that's just one interesting example that came to mind, not
necessarily the most important or highest priority!)
