What does "unchallenged on their complacency" mean? In the world of
OSS, those that have time and inclination design or code things they
find interesting. If no one champions a cause, nothing happens. It
sounds like you are saying that if the community wants Feature X and no
one steps up to write the code to add Feature X to perl, then "the
community" should somehow be able to force the developers that are
already working on some aspect of perl to add Feature X.
