I don't think so. If they ask for that on the list, that already means 
that their need is large enough.
List-owners needn't to know any computer language, and in fact probably 
most of the list-owners do not know any, and you shouldn't expect that 
they will learn it just to implement a feature in mailman - that's an 
utopian expectation.

People sometimes offer their code on the list (a few months ago a code to 
add the links in archive, and now the quotation filter). It's now the 
developers' task not to waste that generous offer and implement it in the 
mailman distribution.

No, they think that they have great ideas, really great ideas are rare.

Sure, but still idea is first. Without an idea there would be no code.
