No means no. A developer does not need to justify himselves to users for doing something or not doing something - he is free to do whatever he likes with his app - after all, you didn't pay anything and therefore no one owes you something. Proposals are proposals - not more. This is why the slang "feature requests" is actually a very misleading term - with freeware, there is no one who can make demands, just proposals.
