My interest in timelapse is what brought me to this forum as the Merlin has the potential to do both panoramic and panning timelapse. The Timelord software is interesting in that it allows for multiple exposures for HDR. Unfortunately is it only compatible with Nikon and I have invested in an Olympus SLR system.
I would like to see:
Compatibility w/all SLR brands
Capability to take multiple exposure settings
Easy to define panning path (both vertical and horizonal)
Platform independent (personally prefer Mac)
Here is some inspiration:

Do you have ideas for the GUI of the panning part? How do you want to define all positions? Do you need to shoot while moving?

Software isn't necessary with the telescope mounts such as the Meade DS-2114ATS-TC Tripod. The motion of the mount can be control with the tethered hand-held controller. A time lapse remote shutter release is used for camera control, such as this one (I have same one with a different termination for the Olympus E-1):

The photos can be easily assembled with Quicktime Pro ($29 USD) into a movie format.
Yes, time lapse uses a lot of shutter actuations. However, the micro 4/3s format will allow me to use Zuiko lens on a camera body that will not have a mechanical shutter. So hopefully m4/3s will deliver increased shutter actuations.

And the point of view changes with a travelling; it can be important if you have a first plan very close...
