    We are starting work for this now.  If all goes well it will be in the upcoming Summer '14 release (Safe Harbor - please don't make any purchasing decisions based on this information until we actually release).  We will most likely focus on Due Date and Type (Event Type and Task Type) fields first but we're exploring other fields as well.
