They belong in entirely separate categories so that comparison doesn't really make sense. One of these is a nice-to-have feature and another involves basic usability.

For suggestions there are no categories when you're dealing with what people want. Some feel their request is most important while others have no desire for it so that is why the best indicator of what the user base wants is the number of requests for a feature and the number of up votes it gets.

This doesn't mean that the one with the most votes will always be developed first since there are so many variables in programing but it shows where the most interest lies.

This is why developers have a responsibility to triage bugs, features, and user requests.

Agreed. That's why it doesn't make sense that this can has been kicked down the road. It was slated for 6.0. Now it's been pushed down to 6.3 or 6.4.

If you're having technical trouble with implementing this feature, by all means say so. But if you keep deprecating it when so many people want it, expect annoyed paying customers who might not feel like paying any more till you've implemented it.
