It's not about getting feature ideas. It's about getting an idea
about how much people want a certain feature implemented to find
out if it's worth to start a fundraising project for that feature.

If we had a feature voting system then we'd have a top list of 
the most wanted features which are most likely to get funded by users
if a fundraising is started.

So when Emacs users/developers come up with a feature idea and after
discussing on this list it seems like a worthwhile idea then it could
be entered into this idea listing system and users could vote on this
and other ideas to create the list of most wanted unimplemented
features (like multithreading, etc.)
