Todos in Gmail?

Steffen from Germany tried to create a label named “ToDos” in Gmail, but received the following message:

The label name “ToDos” is invalid.

Is this new? And does this mean we’ll be getting a todo list feature in Gmail one of these days?

Another label you won’t be allowed to use, by the way, is “voicemail”. Gmail will show a slightly different warning – “System specific names are not allowed. Please try another name.” This warning also pops up when an item for this word already exists in the Gmail navigation, like inbox, starred, chat or chats.

[Thanks Steffen Nork!]

Update: Thanks to the commenters who pointed out that “todos” means “all” (as in the existing Gmail folder “all mail”) in Spanish and Portuguese, so it’s unrelated to a “to-do” list feature.
