There are thousands of other small things we could spend time on rather
than working on the highest prioritized features dictated by our
roadmap. But if we do, it might very well go another 9 years without
any support for high bit depths in GIMP.
Let's please focus on what's important, and compared to high bit depths,
that is not important.
