Why does he have to provide any other reason?  He's upstream for
ifupdown, and as such, he can accept or refuse any feature request,
for any reason.  Playing the «reopen the bug in the BTS» game is just
silly -- you are able to add information to a closed bug, and it will
be archived after 28 days of inactivity.  If you stay silent for a
month, then you have to file a new wishlist bug (or take it through
normal email instead of the BTS).  Seems ok and fair to me.
