I'm not speaking for greg. I read that as, when it comes down to the
nitty-gritty, no matter what outside factors may influence the
developer's decision, it is ultimately up to them. Do they care what
users think? sure. Does that mean they do what we say? no. Am I making
up questions and answering them? you bet! 

Anyway, that's not how I read it. fwiw.
