Fair point, it was just an idea, I take your argument on board. Even so
though, maybe it might be an idea to do a feature request e mail once a
month or every 2 months, as there are a lot of requests, and some people
might not go through the hole request tracker and a new dev might have come
a long in between the e mailing of one report and the next. But I can see
where your coming from.
