I agree completely, my version milestones are currently:
1.0: Choose a group of journals by field... physics, chemistry, p.
chem, bio etc. so that users don't have to scroll through journals
from other fields where they aren't working.
2.0: Users can add journals on their own in an easy, intuitive way
(on the back panel etc.).
3.0: Who knows, I'm open to suggestions.
Of course it is released as open source so adding your own journals
is straightforward though it does involve editing a few lines of html
this to the download page for ambitious users.
