I think this may hit the nail on the head ;)

As compared: object systems, type^W value constraints, :export
attributes, builtin functions for X, Y and Z, a metaprogramming API...
we're running a little thin on the ground for folks to actually be
implementing anything else.

I don't think fundamentally anyone would complain about the idea of "Do
foo but faster", we have to consider how often/likely the average user
is to "do foo" and how much "faster" it could be made for the given
amount of effort.

At least for me, stacktraces fall below the criteria to bother spending
a lot of time on just at the moment, when there's so many other things
to be done. But of course that's not to stop anyone else who wishes to
have a go.
