Of course not. But adding a certain feature to the list which you anyway 
intended to implement when you have the time isn't something very

In general this is correct. But in your case you should have 
nevertheless added it because if you had the time (and obviously you 
had the time) you would have implemented it in time (and you did) and 
if you didn't have the time, too bad, better luck with the next

I'm enforcing the spirit of the plan as I understand it. You are not the 
only one who asked for permission to add a new feature although it's 
not on the feature list (but IIRC you are the only one who presents a 
finished patch). If we make an exception for you, then others will 
claim the same right for themselves. And this will render the feature 
plan useless.
