Sorry, but if you submit an enhancement request on Bugzilla you get stuff like this (from Bug #494433): "Bugzilla is not a good place to suggest optimizations. It would be fine if you wanted to attach a patch but without that intent, it is pointless to keep this report open. Closing as INVALID." Interpretation: "We don't want ideas here. Fix it yourself. Invalid contribution."
I've received this kind of treatment many times, and contrary to your statement that the list is not for discussing feature requests I've been told by the developers to take my requests from Bugzilla to the list.
