Get priority app store queue for most wanted, interested, important apps.

Harbour has a noble goal of 48 hrs processing time, but based on my four apps, something like a dozen of submissions, and listening to other devs, average submitted-to-published delay is 3-5 days, in one extreme case (my Quick Launcher update) it took three weeks (no exaggeration, it actually took some 21-23 days). Well, when system cannot process input requests fast enough, a known solution is to go for several priorities.

While it may be okay for for things like Quick Launcher, I seriously do not want developers of Facebook, Whatsapp, FourSquare clients to wait for that much. These are apps most important for platform success and for the users, I'd appreciate a fast track and faster development-feedback-development cycle for them (and maybe a support email for them too).

How exactly to decide which apps/developers are worth fast track is another story. I would suggest number of likes/downloads last month (popularity metric) + some bonus points from App Store editors (e.g. anything facebook related must get priority right away).

Ubuntu launchpad has a system like that to prioritise compilation (can't search now from my Jolla, sorry). It could be interresting to look at...
