They are still new, so some problems might still be lurking around.

L2 Tychonov style penalization is planned for specific models, eg.
generalized/Bayesian Ridge Regression, Vector Autoregressive
Regression with dummy variable priors and other shrinkage estimators
when there are too many parameters to estimate.

There are no plans for Lasso, although I would like LARS as a
complement to Principal Component Regression, but it's not high on the
priority list.
