So there's a feature request (I'm not the OP) which has recently been tagged
status-declined. I was/am highly in favor of the request. Now I'm depressed. I will probably drown my sorrows tonight in a case of dark English ale (nothing like the old world).
This particular feature-request had 72 upvotes on it and the reason given for declining was not all that great (IMHO). How long do we wait (realistically) before asking for a highly-popular feature request which was declined to be reconsidered?
(ok, to save you some forensic time the feature in question is this one, but this is really just in general)
