I noticed some things do take time.. the thing is that without any
feedback is hard to guess whether something was forgotten, or wheels are
set in motion...

Let me put it another way: I've looked at mantis, the fpc mailing list
and the fpc-devel mailing list... is there some other place people can
keep track of this without having to pester devs to check whether their
pet peeve has been fixed already... instead of yesterday, which is
universally accepted as the proper date of implementing one's*) requests ;)

On the other hand, if this kind of communication takes place in personal
emails back and forth or in another ad hoc/non-public fashion - totally
fine by me... I'll just don my flame retardant suit and keep pestering
people... with the best intentions ;)


*) well.. mine... everybody else can wait ;)
