Note to commenters: This is not the place to discuss what kind of scopes you have and what they are good for. First, that doesn't belong in a comment at all. Second, the issue here is what might be on topic on the main site, not about scopes. Olin Lathrop‭ 8 months ago

I think this could be on topic if done carefully. We don't want this to devolve into a popularity contest of everyone's favorite features. Answers also can't be about opinions of which features "everyone should have" in general.

If you describe a particular application, it could be appropriate to ask what features are required or useful in a scope for that particular purpose. Answer then shouldn't be just list of features, but explain why each recommended feature springs from the requirements.

Tread carefully.
