Hi. Could you elaborate a bit more on the subject: why are they
important? What do you do with them?

Subversion extentions are developed by carefully considering the user
benefit/development-or-maintenance cost balance. We have many feature
requests and have implemented some little-used features
(use-commit-times) in the past, but they end up being poorly
maintained or hard to maintain.

So: I can do nothing but value your request, but at the same time ask
for a larger contribution: tell us your use-case please!
