Eh, the Lua works fine. Who wants to listen to people talk anyway? If anything the mic key should play a fart noise by default.
I mean, having some action key triggers for some configurable arbitrary aux keys would be neat, but I don't expect that to happen, and I know I'm not going to make a branch just for that. It's not exactly "Bridges and Balconies" but it's probably not anyone's priority at the moment either. I doubt anyone sees it as necessary, when there are a lot of things that are more necessary (and take time and effort.)
On the other hand, we occasionally get really cool stuff like Lua persistence and that new scratch space to send notes across HUD/Level scripts and such, which is nice. I appreciate these things.

Now this right here isn't helpful or even convincing. In a word, it's impudent. From someone else's perspective, it boils down to where that you're saying they have no right not to do work that you deem necessary. You're making demands of the (mostly) friendly person who makes your software toy nicer on the regular without getting paid
, a person who owes you jack and shit. Please don't do that. I'll assume you probably didn't mean to come off as an ass, but you did.
Bloated side-note: Prefacing something like that with a sarcastic 'trigger warning' is like saying "I know I'm just going to say something that I know you'll disagree with, but no tag-backs!" It comes off as a disingenuous attempt to color your position as being valid due to controversy. It's a popular tactic in this day and age, one that lays waste to any prospect of purposeful discussion. It is not unlike a bright neon sign indicating an argument made in bad faith, regardless of intent. Try not doing that either? If you want to troll someone, troll them, if you want to convince them of something, do that. Don't blur the lines, that shit is lame.
