Budgeting is one area I want to work with.  What, specifically are you fighting with?

Subject: GNUCash Development Plan?
Once again, it is the beginning of the year and I'm fighting with GNUCash budgeting to the point where I need to find a solution that is functional for me. I'd like to be able to return the work to the community, but I don't have a good idea of what is planned for major functionality changes in GNUCash in coming releases. For example, I found an email from John Ralls on 2011/09/26 that suggested that there was some thought of moving off the C-driven queries and allowing things to be handled by the back end.

Is there a wiki page somewhere that suggests what major changes are planned for upcoming releases?

Also, at one point, there was a development directive that any changes had to be backward compatible in that previous versions of GNUCash *must* be able to read newer versions of the data store without failing. This seems to have resulted in the use of KVP as a generic extension method, rather than changing the schema and providing upgrade triggers. Is that still the case?
