What really triggers feature requests ?
(...) I think people ask for features—they want to do something, but they don't say, "I want to do that something." They translate it into some feature that typically they've seen somewhere else and ask for that instead. I want a feature that does this. "Why do you want to do that?" Then it turns out there's some better way to do that. So, stuff that people ask for, I tend to try and dig to the root cause, before reducing to practice.
