used by users is to not implement them."

Yep. And that's when they all complain "why is this broken." Just like they did about MNG. It's important to find the right balance between "its in there" and "easily extendible."

Reminds me of the sys admins who think that if a 40% overhaed on disk space is good then 80% is better.
"If we could only get disk usage down under 20% we would be gods"
Yeah, great. Let's not actually use the applications we paid for and we won't have any resource problems.

al: Yeah, but it's really only like 3 very vocal people complaining about MNG. Nobody else noticed, because nobody in the real world uses it.

ted: we we're about to switch to using MNG for our slightly amusing dino tail at the bottom of every page on Extension Room when support got removed. it's only "3 very vocal people complaining" because many others realise that everything has already been said in the relevant bug, and spamming it even more won't help at all.

the reason Orbit 3+1 is languishing - no mng support for the throbber
I doubt I count as vocal :)

It's a shame that they removed MNG support.
"only 3 people complaining" doesn't mean that only 3 people want MNG bug.
Many people don't complain in the MNG bug (because duch discussions doesn't belong in a bug)
