i guess you misunderstood me. i understood that you won't code the
features yourself;
how would a "request for a feature" be different from a question of
"whether this 'can' be done (hopefully by someone else who feels like
this is indeed a good idea and who has the skills to implement them)",
apart from the level of politeness?

both are merely asking, whether someone knows how to do it and whether
this (or some other) person is actually willing to do it.

that's all the might you have when you "request".

(but there already has been a thread on the issue of 'request's on this
mailinglist; it turns out that 'request' translates differently in the
various languages, so some people see it as a "question whether it is
possible" while for others it is more a "demand" (e.g.  something they
think they have a right to))

please read the archives on this topic (there are numerous search
interfaces to this mailinglist, one of them being at
the last time, this question popped up on 23rd february, so you might
already have been subscribed to the list.
in short: this is a feature, not a bug
