Hmmm, a nice and easy to use PHP based GIS client would be nice. Should pull 
from public map sources and allow for layers to be drawn in a simple editor.
Or a workflow management app for documentation teams. That is not the same as 
a CMS, but surely borrows ideas from it. It is more a mix between bug tracker 
and CMS without focus on publishing anything through that system.
The only other thing that comes to mind is programming games. People love games.
