Because we have only limited manpower.  It's water over the dam now,
since you've already expended the work, but IMHO you'd be better advised
to spend your time implementing features or performance improvements
that someone has actually asked for.  We certainly have more than enough
things that desperately need attention.  How did width_bucket() come to
look important enough to rise to the top of your to-do list?
