The key phrase is "if possible" - some of us don't qualify for that list :-)

Indeed - the list can sometimes give the false impression that
everything is broken, and it was a good reminder from Richard. But it is
(imho) a great factor in favour of Rev that there is an accessible, open
forum like this to discuss suggestions. It's not quite Open Source - but
there is a strong impression that ideas raised here have a reasonable
chance - if they work out, which not all will - of making it onto the
"seriously considered" list in the future. That's pretty different from
a lot of other language and development environments.
