I agree with you that the design modification here is an example of 
lower priority.

But the way one of the main developer seems to disregard non-coding 
community members is independent from this question.

This is nearly the same position Oracle developers showed when handling 
proposals and requests by the rest of the community.

I can't stand this attitude any longer - sorry.

Best regards
