Seriously, there are hundreds of legitimate open tickets.
All the urgent and more important stuff is done first, even if more recent.
Some tickets, unlike this one, have no work around.
It is normal, developers are already doing immense work, IMO although I do file many tickets, but mostly to not forget those ideas.
I am impressed by some of the tickets being worked on each month, they require huge amount of courage, IMO.
This ticket is another (very, maybe, depends for who) nice to have.
