Initially, memory binding was the main missing feature. But I'd be ok to
wait for 1.1 and just make 1.0 the first good release with a good API
and the embedding stuff.

Apart from that, from the ticket list:
* fix icc warnings -> can wait
* vsnprintf warnings -> can wait
* PLPA-like API -> will work on it soon
* user-defined processor restriction -> Samuel may know how far we are
from this
* lookup of specific PID -> not sure
* lstopo logical/physical -> will work on it soon
* use same logical/physical index bias in all CLI tools -> might be easy
from the above
* get nbprocs from the command line -> easy, just need to agree what we
actually want
