It isn't. The core team has already considered and rejected a lot of the 
options I want. That's OK. It's their project. They're under no 
obligation to accept patches, and because WordPress is free software, I 
and others are free to work on the code elsewhere if we feel so 
inclined. The problem is not that I'm being ignored. It's that the 
features I want have already been considered and rejected. The only 
options left are to accept that decision or fork.
