It's definitely a good suggestion, quite possibly a great suggestion.
However, having made it, it is now just going to sit there in the mail
archive for ever and ever and not ever do anything all by itself.
I think the point that cgf is getting at is that there is no shortage of
suggestions or good ideas or enhancement requests or wish lists nor any
difficulty in coming up with new ones. But without a bit of getting-it-done
elbow grease, a suggestion is really very little use on its own.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
