If you have a suggestion for a better wording, that 
would be very welcome.
I believe the problem is that your requests were all 
more or less clear (ie I - and other developers) 
understood what you want, whereas requests that I do 
not understand typically don't get implemented;-(

But I fear "requests that Carl Eugen understands" is 
not a better wording;-)
