All of the features wished for so far shouldn't prove to be much of a problem, although I'm hesitant over the .txt file support since I think so many text files aren't ebooks that they will need special handling.
But everything sounds feasible, so as I say, let's give it a few days for ideas to percolate and then we'll take stock and see what can be done.
The calibre GUI was written originally to index books. What about indexing does it not do well?
