It seems to me it's a bit unfair to say "there isn't real interest to
implement it from committers".  Plenty of features get implemented
that no committer particularly cares about, because a number of
committers - including me - spend a good deal of time reviewing and
committing patches written by other people which they never would have
written themselves.  It's true that patches sometimes get swatted down
because they are judged to be insufficiently useful or badly design or
because they create compatibility breaks, but that's not the same as
"not interested", which to me implies a sort of purely arbitrary
rejection that I try hard to avoid.
