Does this mean that you’ll never implement this featurerequest?

Actually no, it just means that it’s not a priority task for us right now, but the situation may change, and we may take some of your suggestions from the shelf at any time and implement them. Nevertheless, “Shelved” issues are not included in the planning & development process and don’t have any ETA. You can make us rethink our decision by upvoting issues, and by sharing more information about your potential use cases.
