No it just means that they're not likely to be a priority for
developers. Having a feature idea is all well and good, but ideas
without code to back them up are not all that useful.

Well what exactly you do you expect when you getting something for
free? Most OSS developers write code for other people all day long so
when working on OSS projects they write code for themselves.

Feature requests are really contributing. If you honestly want to
contribute try writing documentation, submitting DETAILED bug reports
things of that nature.
