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.
