For what I am aware of, the SM needs:

1) implementing delayed move file: the only file involved should be 
trunk\reactos\subsys\smss\initmv.c (Recently Steven Edwards implemented 
the delayed move file in the Win32 client library, porting some WinE 
code; if the SM performs the actual move during the bootstrap, we will 
be able to release service packs for ReactOS);

2) peer revieweing the client management code and the SM API in general 
(Suggestions, hints, proposals, questions, code welcome! This is a 
really broad subject, because of the key rôle the SM has in managing 
multiple personalities; the SM interacts with NTOSKRNL, the user mode 
loader in NTDLL, per personality debuggers; per personality subsystem
