This list isn't the right place to suggest features. New ideas should
be logged on Ubuntu Brainstorm [1], the process is explained on the
Ubuntu wiki[2]. All features and bug fixes and anything that is
included in Ubuntu happens via packages in the Debian packaging
format, if you'd like to implement your ideas yourself, you might want
to consider learning packaging and/or becoming a MOTU[3].
