curious question, is this a bug or a feature, and where should I put it next?

Hi Paul

The best idea would be to write up your ideas on the wiki, and link to 
that page from the IdeaPool. is a good 
starting point. Also, if you would like to see this in Bendy, it would 
be a good idea to create a conference BOF on the subject, also in the 
wiki, start at UbuntuDownUnder. Find someone who is going to be in 
Sydney in April to be the lead for that BOF to get it written up.
