[Pharo-users] About "it's not pharo but smalltalk"

Then I have a question... and I'm not being sarcastic here!
As Pharo users, are we allowed to suggest ideas from other environments,
even other languages or projects?
If I think we should implement something similar to VisualWork's
MemoryPolicy in Pharo, where should I discuss that?
If I see package XYZ in Python that I think would be worth porting to
Pharo, where should I discuss that?
If there are features in the Atom editor that are worth considering &
cool for Pharo, where should I discuss that?
If I have ideas/places/means to promote Pharo or give it exposure, where
should I discuss that?
If VisualAge has a nice config map to interface MQSeries and I'd like to
know if a port to Pharo would interest anyone, where should I discuss that?
If I want to know if there's any interest to develop a native DB2
database driver, should I discuss it here ? From what I've read, the
answer is NO. Do you really think that if I post "hey guys, we should
really port that to Pharo" on comp.databases.ibm-db2, it will draw any
attention from Pharoers ? This is getting ridiculous!
I mean, are we limited to only discuss about what's in the Pharo image?
Yeah, the Collection hierarchy is cool but are we gonna talk about that
for the next 5 years? As a Pharo USER, I am not limited to what's in the
image : Pharo interfaces with lots of things on the outside. If we
can't discuss about what's outside of the image and that could improve
Pharo (library-wise), tell me where I can do so!
If I understand correctly, we can't talk about anything that is not 100%
Pharo on pharo-dev, pharo-users and lse-pharo4pharo, is that it ?!?!?!?
What's left for the "outside world" ?
P.S. I'm not saying that this mailing list should be a catch-all place
where we can discuss about baseball, fishing, cars, music, chess, C# and
politics. There has to be a way to sometimes discuss about stuff that
is "outside" of Pharo but that could help us improve it!
