As someone who has programmed, I found I did my best work on things I was

what he chooses to is bound to be counterproductive.
But you are trying to circumvent a system HE put in place to do the will of
vim-users (albeit, currently paying ones). I.e. if what you are asking was
really wanted, it would have development votes on vim's wanted feature page,
and would have been chosen automatically.
That is a system he put in place specifically to devote some of his time to
doing what users wanted.
Like many imperfect things in our world, it is based on popularity and
perception rather than any, subjectively, objective system of what would be
best for vim. ;^|
I want to change your petition to one to have Bram have himself cloned!
