+* The native/yaml reader/writer interfaces should be changed to return
+an explanatory string if there is an error.  The existing error_code
+abstraction only works for returning low level OS errors.  It does not 
+work for describing formatting issues.
+* We need to add more attributes to File.  In particular, we need cpu
+and OS information (like target triples).

+* Add endianness support to the native reader and writer.
+* The NativeReader has lots of similar code for converting arrays of ivar
+data in mapped memory into arrays of objects.  The commonality can be
+factored out, maybe templatized.
+* The NativeFileFormat.h is old school C structs and constants.  We scope
+things better by defining constants used with a struct inside the struct
+* The native reader and writer currently just blast in memory enumeration 
+values (e.g. DefinedAtom::Scope) into a byte in the disk format.  To support
+future changes to the enumerations, there should be a translation layer
+to map disk values to in-memory values.
+* The Platform interface needs to be refactored.  There should be less work
+done in the platform.  Instead the Platform should just be a bunch of bool
+methods which direct the Resolver in how to operate.  Subclasses of
+Platform can set the bool values in their constructors. 
+* The YamlReader should be converted to use Michael's yaml parser once
+that goes into LLVM.
