I'd expect each participant in the discussion to be willing to implement
things they discuss that are within their area of expertise. E.g. Stefan
to at least add that hook and modify the syntax-ppss caching behavior.

I really don't do C, and learning it just to contribute to Emacs seems
like a major undertaking.

Likewise, I'm seeing a surge of users interested in writing Emacs Lisp.
Less of that in the Emacs core, but hopefully the transition will come,

Why there aren't many new contributors capable and interested in
implementing new features at the C level, your guess is as good as mine
(probably better).
