I agree.  Before we put time into developing a feature, we should verify
that many people would like it.

Speaking of which, it would be useful to sit down with a new user just
trying Emacs and see what perse actually complains about or requests.
If several people do this, it could give us useful ideas of what changes
would actually make Emacs more appealing to new users.
