So, other than pestering the dev list (which would be bad), or getting
added to the dev team (which isn't something everyone can do), what
should people do? If you look back through this thread, you'll see my
analysis of the votes in the Subversion Issue Tracker, and the comments
that voting doesn't really seem to affect the dev team's decisions. How
else can we go about "convincing the developers that the feature is
worth having...useful...good", etc.?

I frankly don't know.

Voting for Issues makes the most sense, but if the dev team is unwilling
to pay attention to the desires of the community as explicitly expressed
by that voting, what is the community supposed to do?
