Finally getting back to this.. after having kept it marked unread for 6
weeks or so.. <g>  Yes, I added my "second" to your entry.

On the meta-question..  I don't see any conflict between the "best place
to suggest new features" being the list, and the best way to ensure they
are reliably tracked being bugzilla.

It works this way, from my observation..  The list serves as a barometer
of the interest or opposition to a feature, and may get some additional
details worked out.  After any hashing out from the list occurs, putting
the request into bugzilla ensures it is formally tracked and not
forgotten, particularly if the request isn't something already being
currently worked on or in some way related to a bug.
