I don't like such system.
If many people want something, it does not mean that this is a good
idea and that there is not a better way to do it.
People just vote for an idea that someone else wrote that would
workaround their current problem instead of reporting what is really
their problem so that we can fix it.
A place to discuss request is IMHO more useful than a place to vote for them.
