A bit of a back-handed insult?

All we've done for 5 years is improve Subversion, and mainly by
listening to user feedback. Just because your pet enhancement isn't
a high priority for existing developers, doesn't mean it's time to
sulk or accuse folks of being unresponsive.

As Karl said, if this feature so critical to you, then come to the
dev@ list and start a design discussion. You'll learn (a) why we
think it's difficult to do, and (b) why we think the benefit isn't
worth it. You can persuade us otherwise, or better yet, start
working on the feature yourself.
